"When I first discovered Mermaid Elle’s course, I didn’t think it was something I could do myself. I only signed up after much hesitation because I’m always trying to do better in the water. Elle made the course friendly, comfortable and actually brought out the natural mermaid in me. Who knew? The in person portion was not intimidating at all. Elle makes you feel safe and beautiful! I highly recommend the course for anyone who is even remotely curious about learning some basic mermaid skills, swimming in a monofin or tail, or anyone who would like to become a professional mermaid!"
