In this video lesson, Synchronized Swimming Instructor, Ymajahi Brooks, teaches how to do hybrid synchronized swimming figures.
Video Transcript: "YMAJAHI BROOKS: "Now we've come to our hybrid. This is a series of elements, different positions that we can put together to create what we call one really really long figure. That part about holding your breath and staying relaxed is very necessary to complete a hybrid. So today we're going to combine a table top position with a vertical position with a split position. We're going to submerge it underwater and follow it all up by a barracuda. Ready? Here we go."
Brightly smiling women in colorful one-piece bathing suits, donning white swimming caps, rising slowly out the water on a giant birthday cake replete with sparklers, diving off into the swimming pool in a perfectly timed sequence, each swimmer keeping form with the person before them. A bird’s eye shot of a circle of swimmers, each kicking their legs and waving their arms to create a kaleidoscope of geometric patterns. A beautiful water ballet, where all of the dancers move to a common, well-choreographed theme. These are just some of the tricks that an experienced synchronized swim team can pull off.
