Welcome to Art of Swimming

Hi, I'm Steven Shaw, welcome to the Art of Swimming website where you'll find all about how you can learn to swim using Shaw Method.

Whether you're a beginner, or a swimmer wishing to learn front crawl, backstroke,
breaststroke or butterfly, or improve your existing strokes, we have tuition to suit you.
We offer Shaw Method private lessons, group classes and swimming holidays
all tailored to your requirements. We offer adult swim lessons for everyone
from non-swimmers to triathletes, and children's classes and baby swimming too.

You'll also find lots of information about us, our team, where we teach
in the UK, and Shaw Method tuition around the world. Find tuition
near you by using blue box above, or see our Coming up section.
If you need any help call us on +44 (0)20 8446 9442

Shaw Method has given me the chance to become someone I thought I'd never be: a good swimmer who enjoys the thrill of getting even better with every
swim
