Aquatics: Mermaid Class at the JCC
June 15 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm$50
This is your chance to experience what it’s like to swim like a mermaid! Mermaid University puts safety first, starting our mermaids-in-training with basic swimming skills before transitioning into the monofin. A trained mermaid instructor will teach safe fin use and proper breathing while swimming. Swim sessions incorporate movement skills, fitness, pool entries and exits, dolphin dives, spins, turns and of course mermaid games. There will be time during the class for self-exploration and games, including diving for treasures at the bottom of the deep end.
(Mermen are also welcome to sign-up.)
Once a mermaid or merman is comfortable using the tails, a certification will be given. Certification will allow swimmer to use tails during any evening. Only certified mermaids will be allowed to use mermaid fins and tails during public swim time. This is not guaranteed in one class.
*Tail provided for class. Tails available for purchase at an additional price.
