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.  Governor  McMasters  has declared that South Carolina is no longer in a pandemic but an endemic and with the latest information data reflecting infection rates and hospitalizations, we feel these updated  procedures will help to provide a safe patron experience.

We will continue to update our patrons on this website and through our "KNOW BEFORE YOU GO" link and emails. For the latest CDC recommendations please click the link: CDC COVID Updates

Please take note of the following health and safety protocol:

  • Masks are no longer required but are recommended to be worn in the lobby and theatre of Chapman Cultural Center and the Twichell Auditorium.
  • Seating capacity is no longer limited in the theatre of the Chapman Cultural Center. 
  • 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.

 THANK YOU for working together to stay healthy and enjoy live ballet.
