Courtney Giannone and Harold Moeller perform for LGBT fundraiser

Svindelic company members Courtney Giannone and Harold Moeller perform this week in “Spun,” a variety arts show at Dixon Place theater to benefit the Bee Fund. The Bee Winkler Weinstein Fund is the healing action of cofounders Dorothy Calvani & Dava Weinstein when Dava’s inheritance was greatly diminished because of her sexual identity. That demeaning inheritance now helps young women discarded by their families. For more information, please check out their FB page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Bees-Fund/161388994007880

Today’s class held an interesting lesson in muscle memory. One student took last year’s workshop – the one and only time she’d tried Cyr wheel. She came back for today’s workshop and was spinning like a top!

Big thanks to the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus, Playful Productions, Circus Warehouse, and all the circus lovers who came out to play!

Svindelic performers impress with “Tip of the Tongue”

Svindelic company members were honored to be a part of Courtney Giannone’s circus variety show, Tip of the Tongue this May. Courtney directed and choreographed this piece along with Ashley Dragonn. Harold Moeller played the busking emcee, Mike Bauer and Randy Kato played a pair of cyr-wheeling star crossed lovers, and the highlight of the evening was Courtney’s Cyr Wheel shadow and light solo. This was also the first production to feature Svindelic’s cyr wheel students Theron James, and Mary Susan Sinclair-Kuenning on the roue cyr at the performance level!1 2 10294276_10152155958702613_4049552431980258598_n
