FAQ

What is a cyr wheel?

Daniel Cyr, Cirque Éloize Co-Founder, designed the Cyr Wheel in 2003. The Cyr Wheel is as simple in shape as it is to use – a device that allows circus performers to execute a virtually infinite number of acrobatic figures, each more complex and awe-inspiring than the last.

The Cyr Wheel is a single large ring made of aluminum or steel with a diameter approximately 10 to 15 cm or 4 to 6 in taller than the performer.

What is Cyrs & Beers

Cyrs & Beers is an event that enriches the foundation and perspective from which young artists build their career and seasoned professionals further their ambitions.

The cyr wheel community is very young compared to other circus disciplines. Being so young, cyr wheel is growing rapidly with innovative techniques and styles popping up from all across the world on a regular basis. Many wheelers know of each other from social media or word of mouth, but it is very rare that they are fortunate enough to meet up in person to collaborate and learn together from highly reputable coaches. Also, there are only a handful of specialized cyr wheel coaches across the international teaching scene to begin with.

During this 4-day event, experienced coaches lead students through a series of important subjects that include but are not limited to…

-skill development

-choreography

-creative approaches to training

-coaching techniques

-physical preparation.

When not in class, students have access to open-gym where they can drill skills and concepts. Here cyr wheelers get to network and collaborate with many peers from many countries. This is immensely important because these interactions help to grow the craft as a whole, while breeding life-long connections & opportunities. 

Students participating in Cyrs & Beers have the unique chance to perform/compete in a live show during one of the evenings. This show, “Battle at the Brewery” is held at a local brewery and is open to the public (this is the “beers” part of Cyrs & Beers). This competition is judged for skill, style, musicality, and execution. Competitors have had the opportunity to win prizes such as a brand new custom-built cyr wheel and even a full 3-day training experience in California, USA.
