Description: Welcome back to the German wheel!


German wheel is a captivating and challenging circus art with origins that trace back to competitive gymnastics. Incorporating elements of artistry, grace, strength, and balance, it's a mental and physical full-body workout. Wheel is unique in that it requires the performer to work in cooperation with the apparatus, almost joining as a single unit. In this workshop, you’ll advance the skills you already have by learning and refining forward and backward flips, stomach rock skills, free flying, bridges, hip circles, and more. Prior experience is required; participants must be able to get their shoulders through the wheel in a sit rock and perform a high stomach rock independently.
