Adrienn Banhegyi, a 29-year-old native of Hungary, is a professional jump-rope athlete.
In the parlance of circus performance, she's a "skipper." How professional is Banhegyi? Photos (Courtesy photo) A featured performer from Cirque du Soleil's Adrienn Banhegyi (right) will perform as part of Banhegyi said she gets strange looks from fellow Hungarians whenever she reveals her profession. "You get all sorts of curious questions wherever you go," said Banhegyi, speaking from Prague while on tour. Banhegyi said those with seats close to the stage action can expect a few cast requests for audience participation. "We travel together, and live our lives together, like a small traveling world all its own," Banhegyi said. Nothing makes Banhegyi happier than to hear audience members say the show inspired them to pull old jump ropes out of the basement, or a piece of rope from the garage, and start skipping on their own. Before she joined the Cirque, Banhegyi's day job was working as a personal trainer, where clients discovered jumping rope is never as easy as it looks. "They saw me do a few tricks in the gym and wanted to try it for themselves," she said.

Project: Adrienn Banhegyi
For this project, I was asked to design and develop a brand new website for World Champion and international performing jump rope artist Adrienn Banhegyi. My custom WordPress website design for her site features a blog, media gallery and video section along with an easy-to-use simple event management widget to allow upcoming events and performances to be displayed. As an added challenge, this WordPress website was deployed on a Windows IIS server which required some further performance fine tuning.

After 15 years of competitive rope skipping, holding 2 world records and winning World and European Jump Rope Championships several times, Adrienn was selected to be an artist of Cirque du Soleil after performing in New York City and touring in North America for a while. She's got some wicked moves. Adrienn's rope skipping routines are perfectly choreographed with the music: high speed, manipulations, vigorous footwork, and rope releases combined with spectacular acrobatic elements. With her jump rope performances, she reveals the endless possibilities of using a simple tool in creative and fun ways. Yeah, she makes it look aerobically easy, too. Not only a performer, Adrienn gives workshops to children, adults, athletes, and future rope skippers all over the world, helping them keep fit, improve their concentration and coordination, and discovering creative and effective ways of exercising. She's our kind of gal. Having the world on a string, she's up there with the Zach Gormley, the Yo-Yo Kid.
In advance of the June shows, O&AN spoke with performance artist Adrienn Banhegyi, a World Champion rope skipper, to talk about how Quidam relates to kids today, how she picked up the jump rope and how difficult becoming part of Cirque du Soleil truly is.
