Gerriets VARIO ALLROUND: Developed by Dancers for Dancers


Gerriets International, the theatrical equipment specialist, expands its selection of dance and event floors. The new VARIO ALLROUND was developed in close cooperation with the Gregor Seyffert Dance Company from Germany.

Dancers Know What Dancers Need

“Dancing is one of the hardest professions and shortest careers. The profession demands a high level of discipline, motivation and commitment combined with flexibility and creativity. Therefore, dancers need reliable partners who value the hard work you are doing as well as your health and well being. The new Gerriets dance floor, with its extraordinary characteristics, provides more safety and comfort for dancers. Therefore, our primary goal was to reduce the physical strain the members of my company are exposed to. Furthermore, it was asked for a floor for touring that adapts easily to any surface. The new dance floor combines all these specifications successfully”, explains Gregor Seyffert.

Gregor Seyffert is one of the most interesting and expressive dancers of his generation. He was a member of the Tanztheater (dance theatre) at the Komische Oper Berlin for 13 years.
