Service Description

Collect a PADI Basic Mermaid and PADI Mermaid Certification from this double-packed session of unforgettable moments with The Seattle Mermaid School and the School of Acrobatics and New Circus Arts. Join us at our dry classroom at SANCA in Georgetown for a 3 hour dry educational session. Explore proper pre-dive procedures featuring safe swim gear prep, mermaid costume selection, and chat with a seasoned professional about makeup application techniques for aquatic performance. Then, take a deeper dive into the physics of aquatic performance and understanding the human body as you advance your skillset as an aquatic entertainer. Learn to work with your body and the potentially disorienting abnormalities of closed-water aquatic environments to craft seamless mermaid-like swims. Break for lunch, then catch up with the Alchemist at Ballard Pool to show off your skills, practice the breathing and motion exercises we talked about in the classroom, and collect a world-recognized water safety and freediving certification specialized to mermaid performance. Take your mermaid career to the next step by certifying your dives! In order to reserve regular pool space, this course is pay-in-advance. A minimum of 2 students is required.
