Boca Dance Studio Proves the Power of Partnerships with Carol Colbert School of Dance

Boca Raton, FL – Boca Dance Studio has partnered with Carol Colbert School of Dance for an unprecedented business transition in the Boca community.

What could have easily been a rivalry between the two local dance studios has instead become an alliance of like-minded educators.  Melanie Gibbs, co-owner of Boca Dance Studio, has worked closely with Carol Colbert Skubal, owner of Carol Colbert School of Dance, as Skubal plans to close the doors to her business and retire this summer.

The two studio owners have agreed that Boca Dance Studio will become the new “dance home” for students from Carol Colbert School of Dance upon Skubal’s retirement.  Guiding her students into this next chapter has been a top priority for Skubal, who felt that Boca Dance Studio’s More Than Just Great Dancing® mission aligned perfectly with her intentions.

“After 32 years of performing, teaching, judging for national competitions, and owning my own business, I’ve learned that my clients value high-quality classes and a loving environment,” says Skubal.  “I knew Boca Dance Studio would be the right fit for my students to continue on their dance journey.”

Boca Dance Studio will host a private meet-and-greet event for Carol Colbert School of Dance students to welcome them and allow them to get to know the studio.  The students will officially become part of Boca Dance Studio after the Carol Colbert School of Dance’s final recital performance.

“We are honored to have worked so closely with Carol in crafting this transition for her dancers,” says Gibbs.  “It speaks to her character as an educator and a business owner that she would have the vision to guide her kids in this way.  We congratulate her on 32 successful years of business in Boca!”

While Gibbs and Skubal didn’t originally set out on a mission to prove that businesses can transcend competition, that’s exactly what happened.  Both owners feel privileged to show their students how working side-by-side with other studios can result in a positive outcome for all.

Boca Dance Studio, celebrating 35 years in business, offers classes in ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, hip hop, and acrobatics, and proudly serves over 500 students ages three to adult.
