We love Waterworks! We started our son out with swimming lessons at the Rose Bowl when he was 6 months old. He's now a year and a half and hadn't learned a thing there, they only teach water comfort...here at Waterworks we've only been going for 3 weeks twice a week and he has already learned how to hold his breath, put his head under water on his own, kick, doggy paddle, back float and how to jump in the water. Wish we would've started him here originally. We take classes from both Jussin and Julia and they're both fantastic! Swimming lessons are only 20 mins but for beginners this is perfect, once we reach that 20 min mark my sons done and ready to go. You can also come and swim before and after class in a separate pool.
