Cyr Wheel Acrobatics

for adults at all levels



What is it?

Cyr Wheel is a large human sized metal circular ring in which the performer builds centrifugal momentum by spinning the wheel on its central axis and performing movements within the central axis space of the spinning wheel.

For Who

The Cyr wheel is suitable for all levels at beginner level. It can take time and practice to master the initial spinning and stepping and holding the central space as the wheel continues to spin. Beginner practice also involves manipulating the wheel standing outside of the central space, helping the student to understand the qualities of the wheel and safety positions when working with a large metal object.


Programme runs in 4 week terms. 


Couses can run from 4 to 6 weeks in duration and have previously ran at both Circus Factory and Firkin Crane  - Home of Dance. Currently we have no programmes on offer.

Introduction Classes are also available on Wednesday evenings from 8pm - 9.30pm. Please see our Introduction Class page for the upcoming schedule of classes.
