Before man conquered his fear of water, he amused himself with dust sports such as pushing boulders off cliffs, wrestling tumbleweeds, and falling in the dust. Celebrate the moisturizing benefits of fear-conquering with today's Groupon: for $27, you get two semi-private, 30-minute swim lessons for ages five and up with Take Me to the Water (a $54 value), with three area locations. Take Me to the Water, a proud member of the United States Swim School Association, challenges swimmers young and old to kick their flippers through luxurious private health club pools throughout the region. In each semi-private, 30-minute lesson, carefully screened instructors guide groups of two or three students—a group size that fosters both personal attention and safety—through the fundamentals of floatation, propulsion, and differentiating whales from well-meaning tugboats.
Students with hydrophobia or other physical, mental, or emotional challenges are encouraged to enroll in private lessons. To enroll, the purchaser can apply the value of today's Groupon ($54) toward the cost of enrollment in private lessons
