We started the first class of our Mermaid excercise course on Monday night at Bramley Baths, We had a lovely and very enthusiastic group of ladies attend, some new and some who had been to our taster classes last summer. We started off with a bit of ‘Bunny Breaststroke’ to the sounds of the Andrews Sisters to warm up then went on to learning skulling and the dreaded ‘Egg beater’! (a treading water technique used by Synchronised Swimmers). Everyone picked up the moves at such a fast pace that by the end of the session we had put together a routine involving Flamingos and Swans (our own interpretations of course 🙂
It was a really great session and we were so impressed with the groups skills we will have to get some harder moves together for next week to keep them on (or off) their toes! It was also nice to have a chill and a chat in the Steam Room at the Baths after! Well we did deserve it!! Looking forward to next week!!
We are pleased to announce that Mermaids will be making a splash, installed in the fountains in Sir Nigel Gresely Square outside CAST in Doncaster as part of RIGHT UP OUR STREET DNweekeND (kindly supported by Arts Council England and arts lottery funds) on Sunday 11th May!! You can see us between 11am and 3pm, Hope to see you there and that the sun is shining!!

This is open to all abilities ( ladies only at this stage – sorry mermen) and working towards creating your own aqua routines over the course. Release your inner mermaid!
Classes are every Monday at 7:30pm – 8:30pm at Bramley Baths. Starts 12th May until 16th June ( no classes on bank holidays)
“Brilliant, splash-tastic fun!”

We have just come from a fab meeting at Bramley Baths and can now confirm that our Mermaid creative exercise classes will be starting in May at the Baths. The classes will be running for 20 weeks over 2014. So if you are interested in finding your inner mermaid, doing exercise whilst being creative and having fun, then watch this space as dates and times will be finalised and released in the next month. Its all very exciting! We are thinking of calling it Bramley Mermaids Club…..what do you think?
