Youth Expression through Art

When the curtains are down, McCoy Rigby Arts, Inc. keeps the performance alive for their dancers.

          While businesses were kept on their toes last year, McCoy Rigby Arts, Inc. found a way to keep everyone dancing. The non-profit organization with nearly two dozen employees hustled to produce 55 virtual classes for 165 children, including an award-winning competition team, to continue ballet, tap, jazz, hip-hop, musical theatre, voice, puppetry, and more.  

            To keep things running smoothly, Tom keeps the spreadsheets straight and communicates with the non-profit board, and Cathy teaches tumbling and Acro Arts and communicates with parents, donors, and staff. Both are assisted by a team of talented instructors and administrators committed to making McCoy Rigby Arts, Inc. a wonderful place to train.

            Part of their fundraising and donor efforts produces dance scholarships to reach children in need and the No Limits arts education program for children with autism and other special needs. Cathy and Tom’s vision is to “afford every child the opportunity to participate in the artistic expression of their choice, to discover their highest potential, and to find the joy, confidence, and life-long benefits of creative expression.”

            This year McCoy Rigby Arts, Inc. is excited for a summer musical and a performance at the new Yorba Linda Public Library. We applaud Tom and Cathy’s tireless effort to keep classes going through a difficult year and look forward to many spectacular future performances.
