Christina the Crazy Hooper
Hoola Hoop Artist
Christina is a hula-hoop entertainer from Brandon, Manitoba, Canada. She's been hula hooping since she was 5 years old. For more than a decade she has been entertaining audiences across North America. Her smile has gained her the international title of “smile with legs” (from her father). Her energy, enthusiasm and interaction with the audience make for a fun experience every show.
Christina grew up in Brandon Manitoba and started hula-hooping after going to a circus in her hometown. She decided she wanted to be in the circus and picked hula-hooping as the best way to get there. Christina is seen hooping while talking on the phone, making sandwiches, doing homework, and many other things; and her tricks and routines are made from this nonstop action. She enjoys hula-hooping and is often found hooping with her brothers and sister in the front yard.
Christina has performed on Canada's Got Talent, Winnipeg's Comedy Fest, Westman's Got Talent, Breakfast Television, and Winnipeg Global News. She has also performed at the Brandon Fair, Tim Horton’s Camp Day, Shoppers Mall, Westman Baby and Family Fair, National Family week celebration, schools, community fairs, corporate events, birthday parties, and many other venues.
She recently was featured on the Ellen Degeneres Show and won 1st place in Ellen's "Here's my Talent" competition hula-hooping 70 hoops at once. This fame has gotten her many TV, radio, and newspaper interviews including CBC Newsworld, CTV News, Canada AM, and many others.

The human body is far more amazing than it’s often given credit for. While natural ability can help, anyone with a strong desire to learn and the will to practice ruthlessly can attain seemingly impossible or unnatural, awe-inspiring feats.
“It’s that ability to make your body listen to you,” contortionist Samantha Halas says. “That takes a lot of building, a lot of strength and a lot of patience.”
She’s just returned from breakfast on a day off after performing in the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra’s show, Manny Tuba Goes to the Circus. Halas became infatuated with the performance art while hitchhiking across Canada, an excursion she has undertaken every summer since she was 17.
At a crossroads and feeling uninspired by the notion of going to university, Halas was introduced to contortion by a woman who had just attended a clown school in France. “I fell in love with the idea of working on your body while at the same time making art,” Halas says. “It’s very interesting to be able to do both at once, to be both active and creative.”
Halas began her training at 22, a late start, which invited a lot of criticism and disbelief. Most contortionists begin intense and specific instruction at the age of five or six. With no experience behind her, entering a school to begin her practise proved difficult. Eventually, Halas found an institution in China that would take anyone who could pay.
“When I was in China I would get bugged and laughed at for being bigger,” Halas says. “They thought there was no way I could do it. I got ignored by my teachers for months until they started to realize that I was getting better and a lot of that came from how badly I wanted it.”
After suffering through a misplaced rib while working at correcting her alignment, Halas went on to train in San Francisco, Mongolia and Vancouver. She followed teachers she respected and whose work she felt connected to.
Halas, now 30, is the only professional contortionist working in Winnipeg, Apart from performing, Halas also teaches both youth and adult classes and workshops to a growing number of students. An observation she’s made through sharing the art form is how little natural ability has to do with success.
“I’ve seen a lot of people come a long way through the strength of the human will,” Halas says. “Sometimes the most gifted and flexible people get lazy because they can show off easily and feel good about it so they don’t work as hard.”
Halas enjoys just about every part of performing - from costumes to makeup and choreography - but is especially delighted by shock.
“Some people I find don’t like to watch because it freaks them out,” Halas says. “But I just love it when I hear people gasp.”

The stage is where she was meant to be, creating an experience with spectators. She hopes to spend more time challenging the boundary between the performer and the audience developing interactive art. Challenging her every day to develop new skills and can often be found dancing at bus stops and freaking people out at parties.
