So you wanna be a mermaid? Well now you have a chance to follow your dreams at the new mermaid school in Montreal.

AquaMermaid is the first in Canada to introduce a “school” concept for mermaid swimming, with instructional courses and classes, making “AquaMermaid” accessible to everyone. Programs are structured in a safe and fun environment, and designed to cater to all age groups and genders.

AquaMermaid was founded by 24 year old, self professed, professional-mermaid Marielle Chartier Hénault and the Academy joins other ‘formal’ mermaid schools in Germany and the Philippines.

Mix fitness with fantasy for all ages. “I’m teaching people how to use the fin, the monofin actually, and we start with the dolphin kick,” said Chartier-Henault. “It’s a mix of synchronized swimming, also free diving and also just regular swimming.”
