Intro to German Wheel


Explore rolling, spinning, and partner work inside and around this giant wheel.Using handstands and cartwheels, you'll learn to work with the rotation of the wheel.



This is a beginner workshop but participants should be able to do a cartwheel and hold a handstand against a wall. Due to our wheel sizes students must be 5’0 to 6’0 in height. Please wear lace up shoes with flexible soles: running shoes will work, but wrestling or martial arts shoes similar to Feiyue Martial Arts Shoes are ideal. Available at from Windham Movement Apparel, 5 Arch St, Brattleboro or online.


About the Instructor:

In the Fall of 2010, Abby Lively fell head-over-feet in love with German Wheel on the day they were introduced. Shortly after that she enrolled in the Intensive program at NECCA and graduated in 2013 with a concentration in, you guessed it, wheel. Her second circus love was discovered in the fall of 2016 when she finally accepted an invitation to try flying trapeze. Her other loves include rowing, reading, drawing/painting, knitting/crocheting, and waffling. She's even been known to waffle broccoli.
