Welcome to McCoy Rigby Conservatory of the Arts!

McCoy Rigby Conservatory of the Arts (MRCA) was formed in August 2006. We started out as a simple dance studio and have grown over the years into the conservatory that we are today.

MRCA offers a wide variety of classes including ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, contemporary, hip hop, aerial dance, musical theater, tumbling, instrumental music lessons, and voice. Our classes are available for the pre-dancer / performer to pre-professional.

Owners Tom McCoy and Cathy Rigby McCoy set the foundation for developing an atmosphere perfect for inspiring creativity.

What do you get when you cross a Tony and Emmy Award winning producer, A two time Olympic Gymnast, Tony nominated Broadway actors, A dozen of the most celebrated dancer/choreographers in Southern California, A few stars of television and motion pictures AND The man who has trained and mentored many of Broadway’s current leading performers?

Answer:  The wonderful Staff and Teachers at McCoy Rigby Conservatory of the Arts!

There are dozens of places to study the performing arts in Orange County— but only one place if you want a career on Broadway!! (All this in a caring and nurturing environment)
