Swimming Lessons

The DAC offers lessons from 2 years – adults all year round.  Our small classes allow for personal attention, and our warm pool eases anxiety and improves focus for our students.  We teach children to swim without floatation devices.  Your child will have the same instructor throughout the session.  Classes are 30 minutes in length and must have a minimum of 3 students to hold a class.
