Bramley Mermaids Club made a fabulous ‘splash’ at Bramley Baths’ Summer Open Day. Ten women braved the pool in their polka dot swimsuits and performed a glitzy aqua routine. We have been working with the women from Bramley Mermaids club since May and we have been having such a good time. In the sessions we have been dancing in the water to vintage 1940’s music and learning soem synchronised swimming too! What we all found was that it is surprisingly good exercise and what’s even better is that you are generally having such a good time, you don’t even notice you are exercising.
So we decided it would be a good idea to do a little demonstration at Bramley Baths and we made that optional so some women in the group performed and others didn’t. Our routine included the odd kick line, tip of an imaginary top hat as wel as more traditional synchro moves such as tub, wheel and plank ( oh yes there is a water version of that strenuous gym bunnie move – here its a lot more about poise and balance).
We were lucky enough to have the wonderful Lizzie Coombes there to snap our pictures which really was the cherry on the butter icing on the cup cake! Wonderful! Take a look!
