SO much FUN !! took the beginner class with my sister for a fun birthday surprise and we had the best time ever. It was so much fun to put on those tails and learn on to become a real life Mermaid. The instructor was great she helped everyone learn some basic Mermaid techniques. I was surprise to see how much of an actual workout it is !! Well worth it, plus bonus you get time at the end to take photos while swimming and lounging around like a Magical Beautiful Mermaid. Worst part was going back to land without my tail on ! Love it

Took my 11-year-old and her BFF to AquaMermaid at the UIC on the last Sunday morning in May. The instructor, Alex, provided friendly, patient instruction. The girls had a blast with their tails learning to blow heart shaped bubbles, swim like a mermaid and perform underwater forward/backward somersaults. Finally, they did mermaid poses in front of the inflatable shell for mom to take photos. Highly recommend the experience. One suggestion, leave yourself plenty of time to find parking on the UIC campus -- it is a bit of a walk to the pool facility.

I went to AquaMermaid for a class on Sunday 3/26 and had a BLAST! I was happy we had the time to learn not only swimming techniques, but also fun flips and tricks like handstands, front and backflips, and how to swim through a hoop! The only suggestion I have is to make the class just last a half an hour more for free swim. Although we had 5 or 10 minutes at the end on our own, it would have been awesome to be able to practice for just a little longer to perfect our technique and play around a little with the tail. Overall, I would totally come back and recommend the class to a friend!
