Simply Awesome: The Berkeley Hotel in London is Offering Synchronized Swimming Classes
While we've been busy tracking the new hotels opening in London for the Olympics, we've completely forgot about what the existing hotels will be doing when the Games are in town. However, The Berkeley has commandeered our attention with their latest Olympic-inspired offerings--synchronized swimming lessons.
The hotel has partnered up with Aquabatix, an award-winning synchronized swimming team who will host a weekly master class during July and August in the hotel's open-air pool. The lessons will be available both to hotel guests and the general public.
Learning key movements of the sport, such as the “egg beater kick” and “sculling,” those enjoying the fun and athletic class will be able to perform a complete routine following the 90-minute lesson. The session is completed with a choreographed routine set to accompanying music and attendees are special given Berkeley swimming caps to take home.
Honestly? We'd do it for the special Berkeley swimming caps alone.
The classes begin on July 4 and run from from 6 to 730pm. They are priced at £125 per person, including the swimming caps. Sadly, it doesn't look like McKinley High's Roz Washington will show.
