Lee University will open its spring U-Church series with Ballet Magnificat! on Sunday, Feb. 17, at 7:30 p.m. in the Conn Center. 

The troupe will perform an original ballet, titled “Prodigal’s Journey,” which is the company's interpretation of the biblical parable of the prodigal son found in Luke 15. This touching tale of forgiveness and restoration is told through classical ballet, jazz, modern, and swing dance. 

Ballet Magnificat! is a professional ballet company that tours the United States and other countries around the world. The Mississippi-based company was founded in 1986 by Keith and Kathy Thibodeaux. Their mission is “to magnify the Lord through dance.” 

The Washington Post states, “There's no denying the emotional power of this company. These dancers have the kind of lit-from-within presence rarely seen outside the premier companies.” 

Since its foundation, Ballet Magnificat! has performed in over 35 countries, presenting shows such as “Hope of Israel” and “The Hiding Place,” a ballet based on Corrie Ten Boom’s experiences during the Holocaust. 

During its 30-year existence, Ballet Magnificat! has expanded from a single company to three companies and has opened a variety of educational programs. In 1989, the company opened School of the Arts, which offers dance classes to students throughout the area. The students are frequently invited to perform in local nursing homes, schools, and churches. 

The spring U-Church series will continue on March 17 at 7:30 p.m. with “An Evening of Worship,” featuring LeeU Worship. 

On April 5, in conjunction with Lee’s preview weekend, “Lee Day,” the university will host the final U-Church of the semester, which will open with a performance by illusionist Justin Flom, followed by a time of worship led by The Belonging Co. 

U-Church is a free, non-ticketed event open to students, alumni, and the community. Seating is first come, first served. 

Childcare is available for all who attend. Contact Jill Barnett at jillbarnett@leeuniversity.edu for more information.
