CirquesExperience | Chicago WheelJAM introduces people of all ages to the sport and spectacle of Wheel (Gym Wheel and Cyr Wheel).
We invite children, teens, and adults to join our diverse and inclusive community and roll with us;
Perform, Compete, stay fit, or simply have some supreme fun! Teaching people to harness the wheel’s motion we seek to bring out everyone’s innate superstar. Empowering via the confidence that flourishes when mastering incredible feats. Fostering the satisfaction and happiness derived from cooperation and teamwork.
To complement the Art of wheel and Cross-training opportunities we offer basic instructions in modern Circus Arts, Aerial Arts, Dance (beginner and advanced) and Trampoline. Through these experiences our students can find more creative ways to connect, perform and shine.
What Our Clients Say
Arts in the Dark Halloween Parade 2021
Thank you, Chicago Cirques Experience!
You absolutely ignited State Street last night with your artistic energy, your spirit and your creative power! You brought a special kind of magic that delighted and inspired us and the tens of thousands of audience members who lined up to see you.
There is no doubt that this was the best year yet - and it is thanks to the careful thought and work you put into your presentations. We thank you, the City of Chicago thanks you - and people who were lucky enough to be there to be enchanted by you thank you.
You have set the bar high - and we promise that we will work with you to raise it even higher next year.
We hope you are basking in the glory of the beautiful night you created for so many people - and we wish you a Happy Halloween!
With warmest regards,
Allison, Sharene and (former) Commissioner Mark Kelly

Gymnastic Wheel: The large wheel consists of two circles in parallel, which are framed together with six spokes. Two are simple tubes, two are equipped with a handle, and two have a footrest. The diameter of the wheel depends on the length of the gymnast so that the gymnast can hold themself on the grips when fully stretched. Cyr Wheel: Cyr Wheel is a large metal ring with a rubber-like outside coating.
Aerial Arts: Aerial Arts is a type of practice or performance in which one or more artists perform aerial dance and acrobatics while hanging from different apparatuses like silks, trapezes, or Lyra.
