Focuses for the Intermediate class series will be on reviewing fundamentals, tuning in to your body awareness and sense of balance, getting more familiar with spiral movements, practicing spotting (if comfortable doing so), and gradually progressing to more difficult moves, including flips, free flying, bridges, and more.
For Beginning class, no experience is required! Get a thorough and awesome introduction to the German wheel in this five-week class. You’ll learn to rock on the wheel, roll with a partner, do cartwheels, and much more. This class will build the fundamental experience you need to progress further with wheel, and it’s also a great refresher for anyone with some prior experience. For ages 13+.
