Land of Sweets
A nutcracker party 

The safety of your children and families is our highest priority as we continue the tradition of The Nutcracker Tea Party.

In order to provide a safe and magical time this season:

  • We have reduced the number of tickets 50%. We will only allow 100 children to attend to ensure distance between tables/pods. This event will sell out. We have already sold 20 seats. -Sept. 22, 2021
  • New This Year: This year we are offering for children to sit in tables with families/friends or as we would to call them "pods". We will move in tables/pods to the crafts and to the theatre for the performance.
  • When you purchase your ticket for your children, we will assign your table and your time to arrive for your child's hand print.

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!
