Located in Manila, the Philippine Mermaid Swimming Academy is a dream come true for those who have always wanted to be a mermaid.
Each lesson costs US$62 and is two-hours long, with students being educated by professional divers and swimmers.
Students will learn how to swim with a “mono-tail”, make bubble rings and do dolphin kicks and handstands, learning to possess the grace and elegance of mermaids.
Anabelle Jimenez, an instructor at the school, hopes to impart the playfulness and beauty that is associated with mermaids to her students.
For people who are afraid of the water, they can don a mermaid costume and sit pretty for a photoshoot.
