Fabio Pinna

Fabio started practicing cyr wheel as a circus artist in 2008, at a time where there were no teachers of this discipline, and technique was an exciting journey of self teaching, trial and error, injuries
and frustration.

 

Due to the very high demand for this innovative discipline he started teaching in 2011, and quickly discovered that his students wouldn't have had to deal with all the same troubles he did. He since developed a teaching method rooted in movement science, analytical thinking, and neuroscience, approaching the cyr wheel purely as a balancing apparatus (as opposed to an acrobatic one), to
speed up learning times and reduce injury rate as much as possible.

 

Since 2012 he teaches workshops and classes around Europe with his project Cyrtraining (www.cyrtraining.com). Before circus he was a breakdancer, a gymnast, a traceur (a practitioner of parkour), a practitioner of eastern martial arts, and generally an all around movement nerd.

Emiliano Ron

Emiliano Ron has devoted many years  various aerial techniques, choosing to specialize on rope.  With an academic background in Cinematography Arts (Editor and Director of Photography) and spending his adolescence mixing his passion for martial arts, punk rock, books and skateboarding, he decided to leave everything and become a circus artist.  Learning with great teachers and training alongside others he has become a living legend on the rope.  Currently he divides his profession as an artist and teacher; creating new movements and developing a particular eccentric and unique style.  A freak on the rope. Raw, wild, brutal and different
