WHERE WE CAN FALL IN LOVE WITH SOMETHING NEW

Artistic swimming is the perfect combination of dance, gymnastics, music, and swimming! Our Artistic Swimming camp introduces kids to the sport while enhancing their flexibility, endurance, and overall comfort in the water. Basic artistic swimming skills are taught along with a routine that is choreographed to music.  No experience necessary!

PREREQUISITES

Participants must be comfortable swimming in the Forese Pool without assistance or a flotation device. The curriculum includes being fully submerged and upside down in the water. It is required that participants be in school-age level 4 swim lessons or higher (refer to www.newcanaanymca.org/swim-lessons for an overview of the Y’s swim lessons program).

End-of-Session Performance

At the end of each session, parents and siblings are invited to a special performance where all campers will showcase the artistic swimming routine they learned set to music!
