Weekend Immersion: Cyr Wheel

About this Cyr Wheel Immersion

Dive into the grace, the power, and the frustrations of the Cyr wheel while deepening your confidence and skill repertoire. You’ll work at your own pace and level—improving your waltz and learning new skills such as arabesque, cartwheel, rockstep, and corners, as well as waltz variations and the transitions that help tie it all together. We’ll take breaks from spinning to develop a broad vocabulary of movements—encouraging creative exploration and play.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR

Zeb Galipeau has been performing since the early age of 8. After being talked into playing multiple roles in school productions he decided two things- that performing was inevitable, and that it might actually be enjoyable. It was as this point that he attended and graduated NECCA’s 2010 Professional Performance Training Program, with a major in German Wheel and a minor Partner Acrobatics. He can occasionally be witnessed juggling or meddling in magical tomfoolery on the side, and is a certified German Wheel instructor.
