Laura Ernst Kinetic Entertainment

Performing Art – Des Moines, IA

It started innocently enough- learning to juggle for a middle school play in her small Iowa hometown. Laura\'a first performances were at street festivals in that hometown, wowing audiences with fire manipulation. After joyfully juggling her way through college, Laura discovered that a \"regular\" job would never satisfy her creative spirit so she set off on journey to train and hone her skills. Several years later, Laura has made a career out of her passion for entertaining. In 2008 Laura won 1st place at the World Juggling Federation, ranking her as one of the best jugglers in the world. Then, on the fifth season of America\'s Got Talent, Laura performed inside her human-sized hamster ball, a prop so impressive it caused Howie Mandel to exclaim, “I love you! You are my soul mate.” In 2012 Laura became the only woman in the world to juggle flaming chainsaws, bringing new meaning to the words \"hot ticket.\" Laura\'s signature show includes a human-sized hamster ball, side-splitting humor, exciting audience participation, award winning juggling, and astounding acrobatic feats performed 25 feet in the air on her aerial fabric. This show keeps audiences on the edge of their seats and leaves them filled with awe and inspiration. Never settling for average, Laura has created innovative props and brought new life to old favorites. She has performed all over the world, and currently resides in Des Moines, Iowa with her wonderful husband Ryan. ...more
