Updates from Wheel Sensation – travelling and performing around the world
A successful year is coming to an End – December 2018
2018 has been a great year with many performances, new challenges, exciting trips and interesting people. We performed more than 250 acts on stages in Europe and Asia! German Wheel, Cyr Wheel, Silks, Hoop, Pole, Body Balance and much more. During the last year, we developed many new acts and got several new pieces of equipment. We introduce our LED cyr wheel, aerial hoop and juggling cube act. We worked more and more on customized acts for special events and combined different disciplines to perform a long sequence of acrobatics. Next to perform ourselves, we are happy to coach and teach many new students in our own training studio in Zaandam. It has been a busy, but fulfilling year. Full of expectations, energetic and grateful we are looking forward to the start of 2019.
