Success breeds great self-esteem. Children were 'walking taller' after René spent time with us. An incredibly valuable program—I'd recommend it to anyone. --- Robin Walker - Towne Meadow School
Rene 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; is a commentator for ESPN; and, created her own business with a mission of youth motivation and fitness.
Now René shares the wonderful lessons she learned as a 10-year old that transformed defeat into determination and a passion to always give her best.
René delivers a powerful 45-minute program combining 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 René.’”
In the 45 minute Action-Oriented Fitness Based Program, students are captivated by Solo Performances, Excited to Participate, and Inspired by meaningful messages.
During the assembly Rene 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.
Rene combines performance and teaching steps in her one-of-a-kind jump rope virtual visit.
