About Mermaid Tarielle
"When we are still children, most of us have a very active imagination & believe that anything is possible! Those of us who grow up and live the dream, are the lucky ones! We have encapsulated those dreams of being part of something bigger than ourselves by diving straight into the deep end with open arms."
Tarielle has been swimming since before she could walk and the water has always felt like home to her! For her, it has been something of a lifelong quest to achieve an aquatic career! It was swimming 'dolphin style' as a child that she realized her purpose in life. Growing up near the water, surfing, wake-boading, kite-surfing, scuba-diving and free-diving, her connection to the ocean has always been nurtured. What started as a summer hobby visiting the ocean or going to the pool from almost sunup to sundown, refusing to get out of the water even when her teeth were chattering, led to the realization that water was a huge part of Tarielle's life.
Tarielle has been trained since a young age in the art of dance and performance, with over 13 years of professional training in performing arts. With many previous acting credits, both on screen and on stage, she is an expert at convincing children she is the character she portrays.
Tarielle has a wealth of experience working with children. She is a trained childcare educator, and has specialised in assisting children with learning disabilities. She spent 9 months in Berlin Germany volunteering at a Kindergarten, working with kids from disadvantaged backgrounds.
For Tarielle, being a mermaid and making children's dreams come true is the best possible thing. She loves being able to share her passion for the water with children of all ages!
