Swim Dynamic is celebrating 11 YEARS of swim lessons!
At Swim Dynamic, our 5-day program is the most popular. This series of swim lessons is considered an “accelerated teach-to-swim” program and consist of five one-on-one sessions, 30 minutes each for five consecutive days. We are aware that every swimmer, just as every human, develops at a different rate. Our one-on-one lessons allow our instructors to focus on each swimmer and use our “tool box”, choosing whatever “tool” is needed to make each individual a successful swimmer. At the end of the sessions, we will “showcase” the skills your swimmer has learned and provide you with the basic information you need to help keep these skills a splashing success. We believe that equipping parents with a skill set and an education has helped with our swimming success!
We also offer private sessions and group classes in a Mommy & Me format, for swimmers 6-18 months old, and private adult lessons.
Although, there is no such thing as “drown-proofing”, we are confident in our training and experience and have had great success teaching swimmers of all ages for the last 10 years!
Our swim season typically runs April-September, with a soft opening in March. During our peak season, we have several instructors and our available lessons are posted online at www.swimdynamiclakeland.com

When you see your young child dancing to any music in range, or hear them singing to themselves, or feel them tapping out a beat on your hands or a set of pots and pans, you’ve got to wonder, How can I nurture this love of music at this young age? It is absolutely possible¦ even for very young babies¦ to build a good foundation for music, as well as allow music to help them blossom personally at each of these ages and stages! Kindermusik classes are a great opportunity to meet other moms and enjoy a safe environment for making connections through music in so many ways.
Watching a classroom of children and families, it is easy to see the joy in making music together. Children are engaged in their own way, exploring their own abilities, connecting with a parent, and interacting with other children. And Kindermusik is so much more than that. At each age, there is an integrated curriculum carefully designed around the sensitive periods for learning specific concepts and skills, both musically and developmentally.
