Jenna McDonald, Hannibal Aquatic Center director, said the mermaid class was really successful last summer. “Everyone really enjoyed the class last summer but we wanted sharks to join in the fun this year.”
Swimmers will learn how to safely use their mermaid tails and Shark Fins while participating in this five day course. During each 45-minute lesson, students will have lots of fun activities incorporated in the class: fluke splashes, core rolls, and some synchronized swimming moves. Must be at least 6 years of age and must be a strong swimmer.
