Randy Coaches and Choreographs Cyr Wheel for Jekyll & Hyde

We’d like to congratulate the incredibly hard working and talented performers at Friends Academy on their fabulous production of Jekyll & Hyde.

Randy coached and choreographed the six Hydes in Cyr wheel (which is used as the transformational device / portal between good and evil). In just two short months these young performers mastered numerous moves and became performance-ready, pulling off things that advanced spinners would find intimidating: three wheels spinning simultaneously in a small space surrounded by props and other cast, precise duet manipulations culminating in an acrobatic neck-snapping murder, singing while spinning, duo spinning on one wheel…with the two performers having a height difference of about two feet! Bravo!
