2022 Summer Shag Classes

Summertime means shag time

Join Marion and Dean Norman, the BEST shag teachers this side of the Mississippi, or at least we think so, as they teach and coach the State dance, The Shag. 

The class begins JUNE 14th and meets each Tuesday until July 19th. The time is 7-8PM which is the perfect time for a shag lesson. Bring a partner or two or three! The more the merrier. You do not have to have a partner to learn the shag. You just need some shoes that have a little slide to them on the floor. 

Spread the word that the shag classes are back without masks. Masks are encouraged but not required as we follow the CDC guidelines for all inside activities.

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. 

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 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!
