The Mermaid Movement

The Mermaid Movement

Experience the mer-magic of dance, drama, music, and art with Soleia Mermaid. This creative arts class is a treasure trove of inspiration for aspiring mermaids, artists, and eco-activists. Soleia Mermaid has journeyed from the water to the land to share her secrets of the sea, like:

  • how to upcycle sunken junk into crafty treasures
  • strategies for having the best bubble dance parties
  • modifying your tail for land/leg usage
  • singing songs to SHELLebrate water

All classes include expressive dance to a wide variety of mer-music, delightful drama games to inspire your creativity, and DIY crafting of your own mer-accessories to take home at the end of the session.

*note: we are land mermaids – swimming is not part of the program

Each 6-week session will end with an interactive class for parents and caregivers to explore our journey “under the sea.”
