Brekke Dance Center was founded in 1986 under the name Paula Brekke School of Dance as a sole proprietorship, with only one instructor, Paula Brekke. We offered ballet, jazz, tap, and tumbling with one dance studio in Des Moines, Iowa. Several years later they started competing, and were known for their jazz and tumbling. When dancers announced their name on the stage of a competition they added "and tumbling" leading to their first name change: Paula Brekke School of Dance and tumbling: PBSODAT! When Matthew Brekke graduated from college in 2007, they changed the name again to accommodate Matt into the now family run business: Brekke Dance Center, LLC. Both of Paula's adult children work for this organization, Lizz doing music editing and teaching tumbling, and Matthew in charge of all dance teams. They have studios in both Des Moines and Grimes, Iowa.
