Most of us spend our lives with our bodies planted firmly on the ground, right side up. Not Hilary Sweeney. In fact, Hilary feels more normal being upside down than walking on her feet. Such is the life of a woman whose passion for the Aerial Arts has driven her to create and build Westchester Circus Arts.
People of all ages are finding the thrill and empowerment of learning aerial acrobatics with the help of Hilary and her associates, including co- founder Carlo Pellegrini, a veteran circus performer. Adults and children work on exciting skills including Aerial Arts (Trapeze, Aerial Silks, Aerial Hoop, Aerial Hammock, Aerial Rope, and more), Acrobatics (Handstands, tumbling, partner acrobatics), Balancing (Tightwire, Rola Bola, Rolling Globe, Stiltwalking), Juggling and Prop Manipulation, and Acting/Clowning.
It’s a great way to get you or your child off the X-Box or the cell phone for a few hours. And the benefits are huge. Not only does instruction from Westchester Circus Arts get you in terrific shape but also helps to build confidence, strength, flexibility and trust in yourself by tackling new and exciting disciplines with this fascinating art.
And new for this summer in Katonah, Westchester Circus Arts will be offering a summer camp for your children ages 6-18 to experience these aerobatics for themselves!
Westchester Circus Arts will be raising their Big Top Circus Tent on the beautiful grounds of the Harvey School in Katonah, and people are registering right now!
Campers (ages 6-18) of all skill levels will learn amazing and fun circus arts skills including: Aerial Arts, Acrobatics, Tightwire, Juggling, Stilt-walking, Contortion, Magic and Clowning.
Hilary and her team of circus professionals will be there to inspire campers in this highly individualized program. During the course of this two-week session, circus trainers guide campers through a range of skill workshops designed to build confidence, strength, flexibility, balance, and creative expression. The result is a program that kids–and parents will love.
Best of all, every two-week session ends in an exciting Big Top Camper Showcase for families and friends to attend! Westchester Circus Arts pulls out all the stops to make their campers feel special – they fire up the popcorn and cotton candy machines, bring out the sequence, lights, and music, and put on a show that brings out the very best in every child.
