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.

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."

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.

Not your average occupation, 28-year-old Adrienn Banhegyi laughed when asked if she really was a professional skipper. "I know, it sounds funny," she said, her English tinged with an Hungarian accent. Growing up in Hungary, Banhegyi recalled, "I was about seven or eight years old when I started ... our Dad saw jump rope and thought it would be a good program from the girls at the school he was teaching at, so my sister and I joined the group and got stuck with the sport a little bit more than that." Before long they began attending national championships and soon, Banhegyi had earned herself five European championships and won the world championships three times, performing with the kind of finesse you're not going to find in the average school yard. "What we do is a lot of different tricks with the rope, combined with acrobatics and speed manipulations, and it's a group act so there are about 20 performers on the stage at one time," said Banhegyi, who along with her sister Kata, shares a spotlight cameo.
