German Wheel (Rhönrad) with Wolfgang Bientzle, a German wheel gymnastics acrobat. Students will be introduced to the basics of wheel – the foundational tricks that wheelers need to know to roll for fun, or to begin to compete and perform. They will learn the basics of rocking and balancing, tricks with belts (rolling upside down and all the way around) and without belts. As they gain confidence in their wheel tricks they will learn sequences such as those that are used for performances and beginner competitions. They will also work on fun tricks with partners, and learn the proper way to look out for and care for their wheelmates. The Gym Wheel is safe and fun for all ages and fitness levels. PLEASE NOTE: Students are divided into two groups, beginners from 3:10-3:50pm, more advanced students from 3:50-4:30pm.
