Woman Owned

Est. 2012


Westchester Circus Arts is a woman-owned business, founded by circus artist, Hilary Sweeney. As an aerialist for over 15 years and counting, she is a living example of how transformational and empowering the Circus Arts can be. She believes people of all ages should not have to “runaway” with the circus or be born into a circus family in order to benefit from the artform. She created Westchester Circus Arts as a place where people can experience circus in the most direct way and discover what it can do for their own lives.

The heart and soul of Westchester Circus Arts begins with its Directors – Carlo Pellegrini and Hilary Sweeney. As long time circus performers, they partnered up to bring the highest quality circus instruction and unique programming to the area.
