It was in 1979 when I discovered my love for the dance sport. At that time I was eight years old. I don't remember if it was the dancing, the gorgeous dresses, or both that fascinated me.
In 1989 I began my apprenticeship as a ladies' tailor. After successfully completing my apprenticeship, I worked several years in a dance studio in Berlin as a designer and tailor for ballroom dance dresses.
As an active ballroom dancer I was able to collect impressive achievements. For example winning several area championships in standard, latin and 10-dances, participating in the 1990 World Championships in Italy as well as dancing successfully in Blackpool.
In 2002 I founded my company "Britta Gericke Tanz- & Textildesign". My passion towards dancing can be seen in the affectionate and unique details of my dresses.
In 2019 there was another big change. I found my new home in the green Hoppegarten near Berlin and "Britta Gericke Tanz- & Textildesign" became "Britta Gericke" and "Dance Vibes Berlin".
A lot of successful tournament dancers and figure skaters, nationally and internationally, trust our work and services. For example we worked with:
Aljona Savchenko / Robin Szolkowy (5-time world champions in figure skating )
Aljona Savchenko / Bruno Massot
Gert Faustmann / Alexandra Kley (multiple Standard Champions Sen II)
Standard Formation of RGC Nürnberg (since 2021)
Standard Formation of TC Bernau
Standard Formation of the Braunschweiger TSC (dressed 2013, 2014, 2017)
Standard Formation of OTK Schwarz Weiß Berlin (the legendary Michael Jackson Freestyle 2009)
Nolan Seegert / Minerva Hase (German champion in figure skating and Olympic participant 2022)
From dancers for dancers, we know what matters. Let me inspire and advise you in my atelier in Hoppegarten.
