While most of us spend our entire lives never touching a dance floor, Huberty has spent a lifetime being immersed in everything dancing.

Simply known as Miss Colleen to her students at Toe to Toe Ballet School in Elkhorn, Huberty, now 50 and celebrating 10 years in business, is a classic tale of someone who has boundless energy and who has never stopped doing what she loves.

 Soon after she was old enough to walk, Huberty was dancing. By age 21, she graduated from the Esther Moody ballet program in Wauwatosa. She not only danced for them, she taught for them and performed with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra through them.

Huberty then moved away for a time to Green Bay. She and her husband, Michael, started their family of four children — all boys. Once Huberty moved back to Walworth County, the art form she had loved as a child made its way back into her life again.

“I had friends who knew I had previously taught, and I arranged for private lessons in my dining room,” Huberty said.
