Want to Be a Mermaid? There’s a School For That

by Hazel Chua

I’m sure a lot of little girls wanted to become mermaids at some point in their lives. I’m guessing probably after they watched The Little Mermaid or some other movie which featured the mythical creatures.

There’s no way you can actually become a mermaid, but now you can learn how to be one (or at least, swim like one) at an actual school located in Manila, Philippines.

Mermaid SchoolThe school is called the Philippine Mermaid Swimming Academy and they’ll basically teach you how to swim like a mermaid. Students will be outfitted with “mono-tails” and will be taught basic mermaid moves like dolphin kicks and handstands.

The classes are being taught by professional divers and swimmers, with each 2-hour lesson costing approximately $62.

Through the lessons, instructor Annabelle Jimenez hopes to impart the playfulness and beauty that’s often associated with mermaids to her wards.
