PALM COAST, Fla. – Has your daughter or son ever wanted to be a mermaid? One class wants to help make that dream a reality.  

Palm Coasts Parks & Recreation announced its first-ever mermaid class for children ages 6-11.

The classes will be taught by a City of Palm Coast Swim Instructor and Lifeguard. 

Participants must provide their own tail and will learn proper swimming techniques, fluke splashes and how to correctly care for a mermaid tail.
