Yesterday, I had the chance to spend my lunch break with a champion skipper.

Jump roping, that is.

Adrienn Banhegyi gave Charm City’s local media a brief glimpse of the skipping skills that earned her a spot on the National Skipping Team in Hungary, 3 world championships, 5 European championships and a coveted spot in Cirque du Soleil’s touring show, Quidam. On the terrace of the Ritz-Carlton Residences overlooking the Harbor.

Not a bad way to spend your lunch hour, right?

Did I mention there was a skipping tutorial, too?

Quidam is headed to Baltimore from August 24th – 28th at 1st Mariner Arena. The show boasts family friendly entertainment and spell-binding acts that will mesmerize your pint sizer.

If you have a jump roper in your life, this is a sure bet.

Tickets are available for $42 to $107/seat through Ticketmaster.

disclaimer: I was selected to be a member of the Baltimore Buzz Brigade, a social media project of Visit Baltimore. It was through that affiliation that I was invited to attend this event. The program sometimes offers incentives for blog posts or social media coverage of local events or businesses, and (cool) progeny will always disclose incentives. We believe that our mission — bringing you the best of all that is Charm City kids and family — is closely aligned with the mission of Visit Baltimore. After all, we’re both about keeping it local.
