The Performing Arts Guild of Orange County (PAGOC) was founded and built on the belief that the major performing arts (music, theater, dance, etc...) are a vital necessity in our communities and that the opportunity to study these disciplines should not be limited due to one's financial or physical challenges. Our instructors, contributors, and all members affiliated with the Guild, strongly believe that the ability to study the arts can enrich and shape people of all ages/lives. It is our opinion that the publicly funded sector has fallen short in providing adequate and accessible training in these disciplines and that the private sector (being profit driven) have excluded and out priced alternative options for many families. Our mission is to develop and create a full functioning facility to serve the underprivileged and disabled families in our local communities. This unique facility with its strategic self sustaining business model will act as a platform to provide innovative and affordable training for all of the major performing arts. Our hope is to expand our existing programs in other communities of need and to secure a larger facility to support the growing number of programs and families we serve.

The good teacher explains.
The superior teacher demonstrates.
The great teacher inspires. "
