2020 - 2021 Season

 2021 Season

we must wait to return to the stage

We must wait to return to the stage. Our members, patrons, season ticket holders, sponsors, students, parents, volunteers, professional Company, staff and Board  must continue to stay safe, healthy and at home as much as possible. Health remains our focus. Performing live must wait.

It has been a year since the pandemic became a worldwide health crisis and we have monitored the daily impact. We have seen the impact on our world, nation and much closer to home, our community which is deeply troubled with an unhealthy rise in cases and stress on our hospital system.

We truly felt back in the early summer of 2020, that the beginning of 2021 would look much different. Sadly and with great disappointment, we have not seen the calming of COVID-19  worldwide. With this knowledge in hand, we have made the decision to not perform on the stage for the rest of the 2020/21 season.

The performing arts have been tremendously impacted which will continue for a few years. We know you yearn for the days of beautiful dance on stage. We yearn to perform live for our audiences.

However, we are committed to artistic excellence in professional dance. We know that the power and beauty of live dance can transform lives, rekindle the beauty of classical music and soothe the soul when music and the beauty of movement are combined.

For the month of February through April, we are offering a virtual experience of ballet. We have selected a few of our favorite ballets to share with our patrons, members and those who would like to purchase and view these ballets in the safety and privacy of home. Please click here to see how to purchase our selected favorites for your virtual ballet experience.

We will begin in February with our "February is Family Month" with the beautiful and well-known classic, Cinderella. In March, we will remember the Roaring 20s in The Great Gatsby and in April, we will virtually fly the entire family to Austria for the family friendly, macap adventures of Coppelia.

We are so grateful for your unwavering support and understanding as we all work together to move forward in life, work, play and yes, the performing arts. Until then, please stay well, take care of yourself and others and and know that we are in the office and working everyday to ensure our mission continues daily to promote dance and dance appreciation in Spartanburg and the surrounding cares by providing the highest quality dance training, education, outreach and performance.

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.

This year is Ballet Spartanburg's 55th season in your community. Throughout this pandemic, we have remained committed to offering to our community the services of our mission, education, outreach and performance, to the best of our ability in keeping with the guidelines of the CDC and DHEC. We have all seen a dramatic change in our world, how we live, and how we are able to experience the arts. We are resilient and prepared to face a tough and challenging season. Your support is needed now more than ever. 

Our community's words of encouragement, notes, letters, emails, donations and gifts continue to inspire us each day. Contributions allow us to continue creating new choreography, engage in new outreach programs such as our new partnership with the Leap of Dance Academy in Nigeria, Africa, and our commitment to offering the highest quality dance education in our Center for Dance Education.

We look forward to 2021 when our dancers can return safely to the stage and share the beauty of dance. Follow us on Instagram and Facebook and please, stay connected. Stay safe and take care of others.

With immense gratitude-Ballet Spartanburg
