A swim school in Palm Coast, Florida is making little kids' dreams come true by holding "mermaid" swim classes that require wearing tails. The city of Palm Coast shared a video advertising the new aquatic course to Facebook last Thursday. For kids between the ages of 6 and 11, the class teaches swimming techniques for wearing a tail and how to do tricks like the "fluke splash," UPI reports. Classes start this summer and cost $25 per session. Those interested in taking the course have to satisfy prerequisites such as being able to swim 50 yards without help and being "able to roll from back to front."
