René Bibaud

with René Bibaud

René Bibaud failed to make her elementary school’s Hot Dogs jump rope team as a 10-year old…

Today, decades later, René has: won five world championships; toured the world as a coach and featured performer for the renowned Cirque du Soleil; appeared on television, in feature films, and on thousands of stages; provided color commentary for ESPN; and, created her own business with a mission of youth motivation and fitness.


Through a captivating blend of performance, story and audience participation, René delivers an invaluable program for students and educators.  The powerful 45-minute program combines dazzling performances with fun interactive audience participation.  While the entertainment grabs the kids’ attention, René masterfully anchors essential messages about best effort, determination and fitness.

Students are enthralled and motivated. Faculty and staff are equally moved and leave with a persuasive tool for the classroom. As one teacher said in 2009, “For the remainder of the school year, every time I needed to give a child a boost, I just said, ‘Remember Rene.'”

During this Action-Oriented Fitness Based School Program, students are captivated by Solo Performances, Excited to Participate, and Inspired by meaningful messages.  René combines her skills as a professional rope jumper, educator, entertainer and role-model while demonstrating dazzling moves that students can learn to incorporate into a lifetime of fitness, while the content translates easily into any anti bully program, red ribbon week activities or character education program.  Please ask  René for any special requests to tailor a program just for you.
