Courtney Giannone Brings Cyr Wheel to Jacob’s Pillow with “Spun”

Jacob’s Pillow Dance is America’s most prestigious and longest-running international dance festival, and this year it will host Spun.

A blend of dance, physical comedy, and Cyr wheel, Spun follows a character and his ability to overcome his struggles with the help of others. The work is created by dancer, choreographer, and world championship competitor for the U.S. in wheel gymnastics Courtney Giannone and current Broadway performer (Fiddler on the Roof) Jonathan Windham.


Randy Kato Competes in the Wheel Gymnastics World Championships

Randy recently competed for Team USA in the 2016 Wheel Gymnastics World Championships held in Cincinnati, OH. He placed 5th in the Technical Program, and 6th in the Free Program, earning 6th place overall.

Svindelic partner Harold Moeller also joined in the journey to cheer Randy on and attend Turnfest, the wheel and circus event taking place in conjunction with the World Championships.

It was an incredible experience to meet, re-unite, and play with some of the best wheelers in the world!
