Cyr wheel is well known apparatus for acrobatic acts. Cyr wheel is basically large steel or aluminum wheel, where performer spins around inside the wheel.

Cyr wheel also known as roue cyr, simple wheel or Mono wheel. Daniel Cyr from Canada is mentioned as original creator, however cyr wheel was known long before Daniel Cyr was born.

In 1917 in Denishawn school of dance Doris Humphrey, well known in modern dance community, choreographed and created «Scherzo Waltz» with big steel wheel as central piece.

Her dancing with this cyr wheel was based on the same techniques as modern Cyr wheel artists uses. Later in soviet union circus some performers used simple wheel to spin around the stage, before that german athlete created original wheel for his cyr wheel dance.

This mono wheel was developed by Rhönrad athletes, the Einrefen was made as a steel single wheel with footholds and hands on it.
