Spartanburg Memorial Auditorium Security Screening Policy

Applicable to All 2021 Dance Competitions

The Spartanburg Memorial Auditorium values our guests and we have made every effort to provide a safe experience to all during the current pandemic. Our staff will continually sanitize all surfaces before, during, and after events using cleaning solutions, equipment, and practices that adhere to the guidance of the U.S. Center for Disease Control, EPA, and DHEC.  

All dancers and guests will be subject to a security check and a temperature check before entering the building. Each attendee must have a temperature below 100.4 and a mask covering the mouth and nose to be allowed entry. Those with COVID-19 related symptoms will not be allowed to enter and should stay home.    

We will not enforce our clear bag policy during dance competitions.  Our dance competition bag policy will be different from our clear bag policy that we enforce for ticketed events.  We will allow all bags inside our venue after each bag has been through a security check point.

All dancers and guests must walk through one of our metal detection scanners before entering the building.  Dancers and guests must remove all objects from their pockets before walking through one of our metal detectors.

The following items will not be permitted inside the building:

  • Knives and Weapons of any kind
  • Outside Food & Beverages
  • Ice Chest Coolers
  • Professional Cameras
  • Video & Audio Recording Devices
  • Noisemakers of any kind
  • Laser Pointers
  • Balloons
  • Selfie Sticks    

The following items will be allowed inside the building:

  • Pre-packaged, single-serve healthy snacks
  • Pre-packaged Salads & Fruit
  • One (1) Sealed Water Bottle Per Person
  • Hard Plastic Refillable Water Bottles
  • Insulated Travel Mugs and Tumblers
  • “Wake-Up” Beverages (coffee/energy drinks) each morning until 1 hour after doors open

For the safety of our guests, venue water fountains and water refill stations will not be an option. Bottled water can be purchased from the venue’s concession stand.
