Looking for a reason to visit the Philippines? This mermaid school should do the trick. No, seriously, there’s an actual school that will teach you how to be a mermaid. It’s called the Philippines Mermaid Swimming Academy.
A couple of years ago, the academy was founded by Anamie Saenz and Normeth Preglo. The duo was looking for a new fitness craze and thought of mermaids!
It’s all pretty simple; students are given mermaid tails that help them focus on their core muscles while they swim around like Ariel.
If you’re really looking to get involved, you can kick things up a notch with mermaid scuba diving and mermaid water scootering.
The best part about the mermaid school? You can be any age and any gender — it really doesn’t matter!
All you need to do is pull together $40 for an introductory class. You get to use a mermaid tail, and you’ll also get photos while taking part in the class.
