Q. What is synchronised swimming?
Once known as water ballet, synchronised swimming is a hybrid form of swimming, dance and gymnastics consisting of a number of swimmers performing a synchronised routine of elaborate and acrobatic movements and formations in the water accompanied by music. Synchronised swimming is an Olympic sport, now known as artistic swimming, as well as a popular form of performance art for event entertainment
Q. What is Aquabatix?
Aquabatix is the world’s most innovative water entertainment company, providing synchronised swimmers for live events globally and professional underwater models for on screen underwater productions and shoot requirements. Our performers are all Olympic standard synchronised swimmers, and we pride ourselves on delivering the highest standard of water performances for events globally.
Q. How long is an Aquabatix routine?
Aquabatix synchronized swimming routines are normally a track length so between three to four minutes as they are very dynamic performances. We would normally perform between one or two routines at an event for that ultimate wow factor. However if you would prefer a longer show, we can piece two routines together to produce an eight to ten minute water show, or we can create an even longer show if that is required. For our underwater routines, these are normally between two to three minutes. Aquabatix will always work with the client to fit their specific brief.
Q. Do you provide mermaids and mermen?
Yes we do. Our mermaids and mermen are all from a professional aquatic background and can perform in the water with ease. They will pose around the deck and engage with your guests in the water and from under the water if in an aquarium. We offer a beautiful silicon tail, along with several different colour fabric tails to suit any theme.
Q. How do the synchronized swimmers hear the music underwater?
We have an underwater speaker. Sound travels clearly underwater. We would bring our land speaker to an event, which the underwater speaker connects into. The underwater speaker can also be linked up to a main PA system if one is on site, for the event or music played direct through our land speaker
Q. Do you perform water entertainment in open water?
Yes we do. Dependent on water temperature, we will perform either in normal swimwear or wetsuits. The water must be tested and safe to swim in.
