Join us as we host an exciting circus workshop in Roue Cyr taught by founder of Spinnovation Performing Arts Troupe, Sam Tribble! Cyr Wheel is a fun and unique ground apparatus that uses a large, body-sized ring that students can roll and spin from while hanging on or inside of the wheel. About the workshop: Each session will begin with a 10 minute basic warm up incorporating stretches and body movement that will facilitate learning. Progressive Axis Training (PAT) technique will be explained and students will learn how to manipulate the wheel in all three plans of movement in addition to understanding how to perpetuate momentum in the apparatus. Students will also be taught progression and safety considerations for the art of Roue Cyr. After the initial warm-up, students will spend 20 minutes learning basic wheel manipulation for safety with the focus of finding control and predictability of their apparatus. The remainder of the class will be spent in and out of the wheel learning two basic techniques for "spinning" inside the wheel. An emphasis will be placed on learning various techniques for initiating the "waltz." Creative movement and individual styles of expression with Roue Simple will also be explored.
