Circus Performer Lea Hinz Will Captivate Audiences in ‘America’s Got Talent’ Audition
Who doesn’t love a good old fashion death-defying act? I know I do. This Tuesday, German-born circus performer Lea Hinz will leave audiences captivated by her presence on the America’s Got Talent stage. Specializing in aerial hoop, the highly technical performance is designed to be nothing short of a million dollar act.
Where it All Began
Hinz was first trained as a gymnast. She competed for her National Team at a young age and discovered her passion for performing soon after. She was quickly known for her advanced technique and dare-devil risks.
Hinz joined Europe’s biggest touring show Feuerwerk der Turnkunst after finishing her career as a competitive gymnast. The thrill of participating in such an extravagant show inspired her to create her own act. In 2012 Hinz presented her first aerial act “Bloodstream” in Montreal.
“The circus arts and acrobatics surrounding me made me wish to try out something new though. I wanted to work in the air. I was especially tempted to explore movements on an aerial hoop so I decided to have one made in the dimensions I wanted and started training” according to her website.
Will Hinz Impress on ‘AGT’?
Hinz has gone on to perform in arena shows, cabarets, circus tents, and in theaters all over the world. She performed a season with La Soiree in New York City and had a two year run with Absinthe in Las Vegas where she performed over 1,500 times.
Hinz took her passion to the talent stage for the first time In 2017. She competed on France’s Got Talent where she mesmerized the judges and audience alike week after week.
Hinz will now share her flare for all things dramatic and dangerous on the biggest talent show in the world. Competing alongside other acrobatic performers like Danila Bim, Hinz sure as a lot to live up to on the AGT stage. Don’t miss her audition this Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
