Michigan’s Mermaid Swim School Makes Waves

May 13, 2015

Many women have admitted to me that much of their time in the pool as a child was spent pretending to be a mermaid. This trend seems to span across generations because my niece is the exact same way. I wouldn’t be surprised if my daughter suddenly starts flipping her imaginary fins in a couple of years either.
Which is why it is with great pleasure that I announce something awesome happening in Ann Arbor, Michigan: Mermaid Swim School.

If you are wondering what Mermaid Swim School entails, here is an overview of the curriculum:
“The World of Swimming website explains that the Mermaid School swim classes combine swimming, gymnastics and fitness, focusing on: dolphin kicks; controlling body movement and breathing; swimming under water (on your stomach and back); free vertical dives; backward and forward somersaults; mermaid surfacing; and swimming underwater with music.”

According to the photos, it appears that the students wear a fin accessory. This would make the experience a lot more life-like and fun for everyone.
It seems to look pretty realistic too! I vote we expand Mermaid Swim School across the country so that everyone can have access to this fun idea.
