This Monday evening (12 August), we’re holding the first of four Mermaid Lessons in the pool, 8-9pm during an extended women-only swim (it usually finishes at 8pm). The class is led by Zoe Parker of Yorkshire Life Aquatic, the chief-Mermaid who has been in the pool choreographing mermaid-moves in preparation for performances (on dry land and in our pool) this summer.
The lessons are part of Yorkshire Life Aquatic‘s adventures, inspired by synchronized swimming, by the golden era of Hollywood and swimming icon of the big screen Esther Williams (here’s a tribute clip to her). The Mermaid lessons are experimental and offer gentle exercise in the water for women and their daughters aged 12+ who are interested in trying something just a little bit different, and dare I say it, fun and vintage-inspired.
We’re taking bookings for the classes. Bring your daughter if she’s aged 12+. The first class is Free, but places are limited so email email@example.com or call Reception on 0113 214 6000.
