Question Girl with Grinder and Girl with hoola-hoops on David Letterman

Does anyone know who the perfomers are on the David Letterman show? They started on his "Is this Anything" segmant and are now there all the time. One is a girl that used a grinder on her costume to make sparks and the other is a girl that uses about 10 silver hoola-hoops.
Just wondering who they are and how they were found.

Mike

See Rosie Voodoo Doll in Who's Who section. Is she the Grinder Girl?

I did more research and I think I found the Grinder Girl on
http://www.anti-gravity.com/perform.htm. ButI am not sure since there is no picture.

Here is her Bio:
KIVA KAHL
Kiva is Russian-born who is world-renowned for her performances as Grinder Girl. A veteran of Coney Island, she has performed her act all over Europe and Asia. Her TV credits include the TONIGHT SHOW, RIPPLEY’S, JERRY SPRINGER, and A&E'S SIDESHOW SPECIAL. Kiva is also AntiGravityY hair/make-up artist and has created hair/make-up designs for Trisha Brown and for numerous print advertising campaigns.

Still haven't found the hoola-hoop girl. Thanks for your help.

Mike

See a small taster of our work and style tonite on WB11 New York on 10 pm news. The segment is "weird week" with Toni along with my partner and weekly featured GrinderGirl from the CBS Late Show with David Letterman.

Check out the website below.

Literally hundreds of girls do the grinder, so if you are really trying to track down that one girl, look for a picture.

Hey, I just met the Hula Hoop Girl from Letterman... Her name is Anna Jack.

Actually, we were both in a variety show this afternoon in MA. So, not only did I meet her, but I was in a show with her! She lives in NY and she's pretty much appearing weekly on The Late Show. She said she's usually on Thursday nights. Not only is she an amazing Hula Hooper, but she also does unicycle, juggling, and has a trained dog act. And she's really sweet. She also has a very talented hula hooping daughter.

Check her out:

P.S. As Mike S. said below, the grinder girl is Kiva Kahl. She and Anna are both part of Anti-Gravity in NY. They're here: http://www.anti-gravity.com/perform.htm
