I was surprised I was unable to find a video of a jump rope light show, so I thought I'd make the very first one.
As the first one, I'm fooling around with whatever tricks I can do at the moment, but as I get better at jumping rope, I will then be able to do better tricks in light shows as well. I'm curious to see if this type of light show catches on and others will try and invent other tricks that can be done in this type of light show. Feel free to offer any comments or suggestions. Enjoy!

@Anthony – When you say your shoulders “hurt” I’m taking it to mean that you are experiencing muscle burn in your shoulders, which is preventing you from continuing to jump rope. When I get in great jumping rope shape, the part of my body that is the most fatigued are my shoulders. With that said, if you are using a light jump rope like a Valeo jump rope, that has the right length (your arms are comfortably bent at your sides with your wrists about waist level, or slightly above waist level, not too low) your shoulders should not hurt as much. Also, if you do jumping rope at the end of a tough weight training workout, that can effect your shoulders a lot. Finally, you should be holding on to the jump rope lightly. If you are holding the jump rope too firmly, that can tense up your upper arms and shoulders. Hope this helps!
