Michelle Forsbrey, who goes by the mermaid alias MerShell, is the founder of the mermaid academy. She’s been developing the skills of 300 wannabe-mercreatures on the south coast of England since launching her academy in summer 2015. “I love mermaids, I love the water, the ocean, the beach. I live four minutes’ walk away from the beach and that is not close enough,” says Forsbrey.

She says kids and teens are obsessed with mermaids at the minute because they’re watching Netflix’s Mako Mermaids series. “They are going crazy over mermaids!” Forsbrey continues.

Beginners will learn the basics, like putting on a mermaid tail, safety and care, and how to enter and exit the pool. Students will also learn basic swimming techniques, like “mermaid breast stroke”, and treading water, along with some “under water fun” like finding treasure.
