Mermaid school opening in Toronto July 5th

Toronto is getting its own Mermaid school this summer, following in the footsteps of the much-hyped Montreal location of Aquasirene. Founded by Marielle Chartier HĂŠnault in January, the plan was always to come try this market after the first location was up and running.

Mermaid school is pretty much exactly what it sounds like, where swimming classes take place in full fins and other appropriate attire. The idea is to add a dose of whimsy to traditional swimming lessons, though the mermaid staff are typically trained as lifeguards, synchronized swimming instructors and aqua fitness trainers.

In Montreal, the school is hosted at about 10 local pools but so far only one pool has been selected for Toronto. Classes will officially begin at Jimmy Simpson on July 5th.

Until then, watch out for strange octopus-like creatures posing as friends. They're lurking everywhere.
