East German gymnast Kerstin Gerschau later married sprinter Klaus-Dieter Kurrat and they owned a fitness studio and a dance school, where she was responsible for choreography. Their three daughters also later became dance coaches in their school. Kerstin studied choreography at the Theater Academy in Leipzig and received a degree in physical education from the German College of Physical Education.
