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.
