Underwater ballerinas can join in and learn new ways to sync and swim! Participants can enjoy the music, wear nose clips and have a good time with big smiles. The team has launched Synquatics and introduced synchronised swimming lessons in Dubai for the very first time.
Synchronised swimming is a fusion form of swimming, dance and gymnastics. Members can either swim as a solo, duet, trio, team and combo and also create a blend of arm and leg movements to music in the water. Synchronised swimming requires water strength and requires great skills; flexibility, grace, artistry and precise timing. The acts require exceptional breath control when upside down doing movements under the water. Competitors show off their strength, endurance and flexibility required to perform their difficult routines. Synchronised swimmers prepare to perform two routines for the judges which includes: one technical and one free as well as the figures that are under that particular age group.
Synchronised swimming is governed internationally by FINA (federation Internationale de Natacion). The company launched Synquatics in December 2012 and were the first synchronised swimming club in Dubai to open. In no time, they witnessed an overwhelming levels of interest and in less than two years, have continued to maintain more than two hundred members in their team as well as seven professional coaches.
The company is focused is creating skilled and strong competitive teams that enjoy this graceful and beautiful sport just as much as the coach and staff. They ensure high quality professional training that focuses on technique instruction for all ages and abilities. The team provides opportunities to every member so as to improve her synchronised swimming skills and achieve success at her level of ability, from beginner to international competitor. All the coaches collectively teach techniques that are based on the UK skill level ladder system. They make sure that the time children spend with learning in the water is quality time where learning is guaranteed.
The company not only offers classes for children, but also have two adult classes that have been training very hard. They have been participating in different performance shows throughout the UAE as a new entertainment activity and compete in the World Masters competition very soon.
