“Coca-Cola” flip

Have you heard the term?

Even when I was a trampolinist in the late 1970s we called any multiple somersault with a kick open (crazy, by the way) in the middle a Coca-Cola. I have no idea how that slang got started.

Here’s a good example.

Cyr wheel

The Cyr wheel (also known as the roue Cyr, mono wheel, or simple wheel) is an acrobatic device popularized in the early 21st century. It consists of a single large, metal hoop and is similar in some ways to a German wheel, with the acrobat spinning inside the wheel while maneuvering around the stage. …

The cyr wheel was further popularized as a circus skill by numerous acrobats and circus artists during the 1990s and later by Daniel Cyr in 2003, who presented the first cyr wheel circus act at the 2003 Festival Mondial du Cirque de Demain in Paris. … Cyr claims he created it without any awareness of previous similar devices …

A beautiful edit.

circus Bar act – Tournik

Eight artists cross paths in the Tournik Act from Corteo which marries horizontal bar techniques with circus arts. The artists perform on a central cube-shaped structure, with two additional bars on each side of the cube. The various parts of the structure turn, sometimes all in the same direction, sometimes in opposite directions… just to keep everyone on their toes!
