Skipping work is a way of life for one 'Cirque' star

Rope-skipper extraordinaire Adrienn Banhegyi did not run away to join the circus. Cirque du Soleil came to her.
The 27-year-old, Hungarian-born champion jump-roper was last seen in the Cirque du Soleil production of "Wintuk" in New York City. Locals can look for her as a headliner in the latest traveling edition, "Quidam," coming to Baltimore's 1st Mariner Arena Aug. 24 to 28.
Banhegyi will be taking the part in the show of another champion rope-jumper, who just happens to be her sister.
"I am replacing my sister, who is taking a break from performing," said the petite performer.
During a special preview in Baltimore, Banhegyi demonstrated her skipping talent for local reporters, encouraging each to take a turn at jumping with her.
The stunt made the point that perfect jump-ropers may be born rather than made.read more:http://www.baltimoresun.com/explore/howard/events-entertainment/ph-ho-cirque-du-soleil-20110819,0,5277185.story
