Get in the water

Local swim club offering beginners a chance to dip their toe in water dancing

The Ravensong Waterdancers synchronized swimming club is kicking off their season with a ‘See it, Try it’ for the community to participate on Tuesday, Sept. 23 from 6-7 p.m. at the Ravensong Aquatic Centre in Qualicum Beach.

The ‘See it, Try it’ allows people to watch some of last season’s star swimmers show off their moves and learn a few simple figures themselves with the guidance of the club’s very own swimmers and coaches.

They will then perform the figures in a mini-routine.

This is a free event and open to those who are seven years and older. Swimmers are encouraged to have completed level five swimming lessons; however, they can be enrolled in the lessons while in synchro.

If there are children who have complete level five and are not seven years of age, they are encouraged to attend and work with the coaches for an assessment.
