Jim Moyeer Circus Club
German Gym Wheel


The German Gym Wheel is one of the most exciting and one of the most difficult apparatuses we use in performance.   We have three gym wheels of different sizes to accommodate the entire range of kids.  We begin by teaching the basic cartwheel then advance to more difficult maneuvers such as the "up and over," the "Ferris wheel" and the "split".  Students who develop a high level of proficiency work together in two, three and four person teams executing very exciting combination demonstrations.   The highest level and most difficult demonstration is the penny roll and we currently have one student who executes this maneuver in performance.
