Embrace Your Inner Mermaid
Whether you're a fan of Disney's The Little Mermaid or not, chances are pretty good that you have marveled at mermaids and everything they stand for: freedom, grace, beauty, innocence, and so much more. It's little wonder that Muriel has captured so many hearts with her adventures. But if you can't get enough of it, perhaps you should make your own effort to become a mermaid, and we're not talking about sprouting scales and fins either. Instead, you can learn to become a mermaid at one of the many schools across the country that specialize in making these dreams come true.
It doesn't matter whether you are a child or an adult, male or female, mermaid school is more than just another excuse for swimming classes. It's an art that combines swimming, gymnastics, fitness, and even a bit of the magical when you consider that you will be transformed into a beautiful magic water creature. All of this is accomplished with as little as five hours of instruction from certified coaches who are present at all times.
Becoming a mermaid is more than just mastering your dolphin kick. You will also learn to control the movement of your body and your breathing, so you become more and more like a mermaid with every flip of your tail. Most sessions include swimming underwater, on your stomach and back, vertical dives, as well as backward and forward summersaults, mermaid surfacing techniques, and doing everything to music. It's not hard to remember that being a mermaid is swimming as an art more than a technique, and at mermaid school students will learn to satisfy their fantasy and improve their individual performance.
Most mermaid schools offer students the opportunity to purchase a tail, which is fitted to your shoe size as well as your weight. Ladies also receive a matching top as well as a backpack for your tail. And when you complete the classes, most schools offer a chance to have your fantasy picture taken as a mermaid, both in the water and out. Some even offer an underwater graduation movie to preserve your memory and to show your friends.
So whether you have a fantasy to become the next Muriel or not, mermaid school may be just the thing that you need to break you’re swimming out of the hum-drum, and make it something truly fun and extraordinary. Grab your fins and we will meet you there.
