In 2012 the ABC Christian Academy partnered with Ballet Magnificat in Jackson Mississippi to help develop a Ballet Program for children in Lilongwe Malawi. The ABC Christian AMath Teacher for High Schoolademy Ballet Program was born. We have had three instructors over the past three years and the program now has over 110 ballet students. Our main goal is to share the love of Christ with our students and the community by using dance to share the gospel. You will have many platforms to share the gospel to thousands of people throughout Malawi. If you love to dance and to teach dance this may be your dream job.

These will include the following:
• Connecting with local businesses and sponsors, advertising, and hosting events to fundraise for all ballet expenses including but not limited to costumes, props, sets, renting the auditorium, printing costs, etc. This will require a significant amount of time driving throughout Lilongwe to connect and establish relationships with the leaders in the community. Plan on paying for car and fuel costs as it is a big part of this job.
• Managing all administrative duties that are necessary to run a ballet school including emails, errands, paperwork, inventory, planning for the next year, etc.

You will write the story or program, edit music, choreograph, teach, find costumes, get all printing of posters, tickets, and programs, organize props and sets, fundraise, advertise, direct, and produce the show.
