It's not on the moon, but in this video Apollo astronaut Alan Bean does gymnastics in zero-g on Skylab. From about 1:05 to 1:13 he is twisting pretty fast. He was a gymnast in college:

This cannot be done on the International Space Station since it doesn't have a large unobstructed habitable volume. The total habitable volume on Skylab was 12,500 cubic feet, whereas ISS is 13,696 cubic feet (both excluding spacecraft), but ISS is divided into many small compartments.

The above video is probably the only low-g or zero-g gymnastics anyone will see until a large habitat is built in space or on the moon.
