Patron Health and Safety Protocol


The number one priority of Ballet Spartanburg remains the health and safety of our patrons, dancers, staff, faculty, volunteers and parents. We are committed to presenting live professional ballets with safety measures in place for our patrons this season. We will continue to monitor guidelines for the latest public health information/procedures from the CDC and SCDHEC. We will update these procedures to provide a safe patron experience.

Due to the current rise in COVID-19 cases, Ballet Spartanburg's Board of Trustees and the Chapman Cultural Center support a Universal Mask Policy on the Chapman Cultural Center campus. We realize that the information from the CDC is ever-evolving. We will continue to update our patrons on this website and through our "KNOW BEFORE YOU GO" link and emails.

Please take note of the following health and safety protocol:

  • Masks are required to be worn in the lobby and theatre of Chapman Cultural Center and the Twichell Auditorium. Masks will be worn in the buildings at all times. Face Sheilds, gaiters, bandanas, and pulling up a shirt around a face are not acceptable as face protection for any live performance at the Chapman Cultural Center. A mask must go around the ears for stability and cover nose and mouth. They are not to be removed during the performances. Should you have a medical condition and cannot wear one, please inform an usher. We want to ensure, as best possible, that our audience and dancers are safe while enjoying live performing arts.
  • Seating capacity is limited at Twichell at this time. This may change. The Chapman Cultural Center will only hold at this time for our performances 300 ticket holders so that we can space out our patrons. We have 5 performances of The Wizard of Oz for all to enjoy safely. 
  • Eat concessions outside or if eating inside, please try to space your group from others.
  • Additional bathrooms are located in the other two buildings. If you see a line or if a bathroom is crowded, leave and go to another building during intermission.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water. Use hand sanitizer if soap and water aren’t available.

The above policies are interim based on the latest guidelines provided by the CDC and SCDHEC. As these guidelines change, our interim guidelines will be changed accordingly. THANK YOU for working together to stay healthy and enjoy live ballet.

Ballet Spartanburg

Education. Outreach. Performance.

The joyful picture above of children from Sidewalk Hope, an inner city ministry in Spartanburg, captures the essence and innocence of joy, hope, and the connections that are created when we dance.  Sidewalk Hope participated in the 2018 So You Think You Can Dance, Spartanburg! community event, a fundraiser in partnership with 10 local organizations. The picture above reflects opportunity, joy, happiness, dance and above all, who we are as an organization: education, outreach and performance. We will present So You Think You Can Dance, Spartanburg!, March 31, 2022. Please look for our event as we post information later this summer.

The happiness in dancing on stage is reflected in this precious little dancer's eyes and body.  Arms open, lights aglow,  feet planted firmly on the stage, basking joyfully from a successful performance. This is the feeling we have as we anticipate returning to the stage this October with the premiere of Carlos Agudelo's, The Wizard of Oz.. Ballet Spartanburg and its Board of Trustees and staff will monitor and adjust all health and safety precautions as directed by the CDC. We are ready to to dance. We are ready to see our audience. We are ready.

Thank you for your continued love and support for 55 years. Onto our 56th season we go! Now follow the yellow brick road and grab your SEASON TICKETS TODAY!
