Ballet Magnificat!, a full-time Christian ballet company, is coming to the Dunham School for a performance at 7 p.m. Feb. 5 .

The ballet company will premiere its newest work, “Stratagem,” in the school’s Brown Holt Chapel Arts Theatre.

“Stratagem,” choreographed by Tara Thibodeaux Drew and inspired by C. S. Lewis’ “The Screwtape Letters,” follows the lives of three people and is a glimpse into the battle of the unseen world of good and evil and the struggle thereof, a news release from the school said.

From the Kennedy Center to Singapore’s historic VictoriaTheatre, thousands throughout the world have attended the Ballet Magnificat! performances. Ballet Magnificat! ministers to audiences through “life-impacting dance experiences,” the release said.

Tickets for the performance are $25 for reserved seating and can be purchased through the Dunham website at

In addition to the performance Ballet Magnificat! will offer two dance classes for area residents.

An intermediate/advanced- level ballet class for experienced dancers age 12 and older will be held at 6 p.m. Tuesday.

A creative worship class for anyone 12 and older is set for 6 p.m. Wednesday.

Both classes will be held in the Brown Holt Chapel Arts Theatre on the Dunham campus.

A fee of $30 will be charged for each class and each class will be limited to 25.

Participants can register through the Dunham website.
