Sync or Swim
A ‘dry’ alternative to the dazzling Olympic discipline of Synchronized Swimming. (Absolutely NO water involved)
Flexible to venue, time and budget, Sync or Swim can be light hearted after-dinner entertainment or a fun conference energiser with positive underlying messages.
Participants take on the role of a national ‘squad’ training for the next Olympics. Teams plan, prepare and perform a medal winning routine, all choreographed to a specific backing track.
Each squad is given swimming hats, nose clips, portable stereos and, of course, false eyelashes for dramatic effect! The most important piece of equipment is the unique ‘dry pool’ that becomes the focal of point of each performance. The team members simply supply the imagination, co-ordination and energy to impress the judges and entertain their colleagues.
After a short rehearsal, each squad performs in turn while remaining teams spectate. Just like the real thing, ‘swimmers’ are judged on technical merit and artistic impression.
The final performances are often surprisingly close to the actual discipline and always highly amusing. Once the collaborative fun is over, the judges make the agonising decision of which team is to take position on the podium and receive their gold medals.
