Mermaid Classes Chicago: AquaMermaid Makes My Dreams Come True

I’m done adulting. All I want to do is run away and be a mermaid! And OMG…my dreams came true! A new mermaid class has come to Chicago!! Aquamermaid Chicago offers introductory classes for adults (over 14) and kids (7-13). The intro class fits would-be mermaids with a fin, lets you choose your color of tail (pink or blue), and teaches you the basics of swimming without legs!
