Danika & Emily Simmons are The Aqua Life’s first twin Swimmers of the Session! These six year old fraternal twins absolutely adore the water! Unfortunately, like many fearless kids these two were prone to jumping in the water with or without supervision and that is why their mom, Xioli trusted us to teach her girls how to swim.

Stephanie: When Danika and Emily came for their first lesson it was evident that they had no fear of the water whatsoever! It was also apparent that they needed to learn to swim independently as soon as possible for their own safety.

After two sessions with Emilly Parker as their instructor, the girls quickly picked up the necessary skills and swim fundamentals and breezed through Swim 101. By the end of the Fall II session, Danika and Emily were able to swim 10m on their own with their face in the water, breathing when needed.

It was a joy to watch them laugh and learn! It was also a real relief for their Mom and Dad when they were finally capable of swimming back to the side of the pool without assistance.

Way to go, Danika and Emily! Keep it up! You are on your way to a fantastic Aqua Lives!
