Not the case with Hungarian born ... [cached]

Not the case with Hungarian born Adrienn Banhegyi, who at the age of 28, is a jump rope pro and a member of Cirque du Soleil. I met with her at the JW Marriott. Very comfortable speaking English (she started learning the English language as a child) Adrienn was candid, vibrant, down to earth, funny, brilliant and gracious.

Her jumping journey started 20 years ago.
"The main reason I started jump rope is that my dad is a physical education teacher and he wanted to have a sport that is easy too access and doesn't take up too much space," explains Banhegyi. "He saw girls playing double-dutch and jumping with single ropes and felt it was a good way to improve condition and coordination at the same time."
Banhegyi developed her own tricks and techniques and joined a national skipping team where she won the World Championships three times and the European championships five times. She teaches skipping to children, as well as athletes. She also holds a world record!
"I have a world record in jump rope - consecutive triple lander," brims Banhegyi. "[It] means you turn the rope three times for every jump. I did it three hundred thirty times."
Six years ago, Adrienn started to feel she was getting "too old for the competitions" and decided to pursue a career in performance art. She sent the casting department at Cirque a demo video and was contacted to attend an audition in France.
"They have to look at your talent, test your flexibility, strength, jump rope knowledge, and they also look for facial expressions and your body language," says Banhegyi. "We have to be technically qualified."
A few years passed before she was invited to attend their training school. And, 18 months ago Adrienn officially joined Cirque du Soleil. She is now on tour with Quidam in North America performing as a rope-skipping soloist. Each performance is as breathtaking as the one before.
"You figure out the best way to prepare mentally. When you're wearing the makeup - for me, it's easy to perform. It puts you in a different character," Banhegyi explains. "I feel very happy when I'm on stage. I bring a lot of energy to the act."
The show is rigorous on the performers with choreography but also with geography.
"Every week we change cities," Banhegyi admits.
Banhegyi also loves travelling and attributes the realization of her goals in her personal mantra; the key to happiness is having dreams and the key to success is making them come true.
When back in Hungary she looks forward to her mom preparing her favorite, yet traditional meals. "I'm sure she would prepare fruit soup, gyümölcsleves. It's a cold soup with cherries and peach, made especially during summer," she smiles.
Banhegyi will be in Grand Rapids performing with Cirque du Soleil: Quidam from May 30 to June 3, 2012 at the Van Andel Arena.
