Requisites: – Bring own tail & snorkel mask/goggles – Must be able to swim 2 laps mermaid-style comfortably and unassisted – Can accommodate 14 pax – 150 USD/pax
Description: Ever wanted to learn how to conduct yourself with greater calm and confidence underwater? Wanted to know how to project yourself skillfully and aesthetically in the video medium?
Your videos are important. They’re a vital part of your presentation of yourself as a mermaid. Mastering how you portray yourself in the medium of video has a direct impact on how you are perceived – to an audience, to clients, to whoever you’re hoping to target, whether as a hobbyist or professional.
Come beneath the surface with Syrena, Singapore’s First Mermaid and inhabit a world of grace, poise, and calm. You will be brought through a series of onland and sub-surface technique refinements for facial expressions and physical movement, and be guided through new techniques and flows that will have you video camera ready. Syrena will lead you through several of her signature moves that feature in her signature shows.
Class finale will have you combining all the aspects you’ve learned into a taught choreography tailored for the video camera. All participants will receive their own choreography video footage of themselves, and a custom Syrena workshop certificate.
