Miracle Swimming for Adults, Inc., a non-profit organization in Sarasota, FL from 2010 to 2019, closed on 12/31/19. Its founder, Melon (Mary Ellen) Dash, opened Miracle Swimming School for Adults, LLC January 1, 2020.

The nonprofit was strictly required by law to give no forwarding information since the school replacing it is a for-profit organization. All are truly sorry for any inconvenience!

This site has gone live before attaining full functionality in order to provide information for those seeking Miracle Swimming. You may sign up for classes at links on our Course Schedule page. For a short time, receipts will say 5 Circles Mindfulness, LLC and there will be an extra step. Thank you for your patience.

All the inspiration, breakthroughs, fun, and changed lives that were made possible by Miracle Swimming since its founding in 1983—when Melon originally opened her swim school—continue in 2020, unaltered. Our plans will appear here in the coming month. Start or resume your victorious swimming journey in Sarasota with our Beginning Course January 27-31, 2020 or our Next Step Course February 3-7, 2020. Or, learn in San Francisco on February weekends.

A huge thank you goes to the former members of our board of directors who put their very

best thinking and a tremendous amount of time and heart into making the nonprofit all it could be: Terri Goodman CEO, Beth Sullivan President, Judith Luberski Vice President, Anna Lea Matysek Treasurer, and Renee Piazza, Raymond Ortiz and Susan Curll. Thank you all for serving the dreams of adult non-swimmers, which three of you once were.
