About Our
Swimming School

Our value is to create an effective learning system and ensure our students enjoy their swimming classes while improving their skills.

Auckland Swimming School, Aqua Artist was founded in 2015 by Dai Jun, Bronze Medallist at the London Olympics 2012. He believes that learning to swim correctly and effectively requires good instructions alongside a certain amount of practice.

At Aqua Artist, we have brought two major changes to the industry: Dryland Training and Longer Class Duration. Dryland training allows students to learn the correct skills on dry land before they even get in the water. After the skill is learned on dry land, it’s time to practice the real skill in the water with a well-designed plan to create the correct muscle memories. This innovative approach revolutionizes traditional swimming lessons, enhancing the overall experience beyond the confines of the swimming pool.

Over the years, Aqua Artist Swimming School has built a very high reputation in the industry with its professional teaching system and good standard management. Our innovative teaching philosophy and effective teaching system have profoundly impacted over 5000 students. Swimming is not just a sport but a life skill that accompanies each individual in their lives. Additionally, our state-of-the-art facility boasts a heated pool, providing a comfortable and enjoyable environment for all swimmers.

About our founder

Head Coach Jun Dai

Jun Dai was born into a swimming family and started his swimming lessons at a young age. When he was 13 years old, he qualified for the Chinese National Team and began his career as a professional swimmer. Throughout numerous international competitions, he consistently showcased swim excellence:

  • Gold Medal from 2009 The China National Games
  • Gold Medal and Record Holder in the Youth Olympic Games in 2010
  • Gold Medal at the 16th Asian Games in 2010
  • Silver Medal from Short Course World Cup Men's 1500m Freestyle
  • Silver Medal from National Swimming Championships
  • Bronze medal from the 2012 London Olympics
  • Gold Medal from the New Zealand Open in 2015
  • 2016-2017 New Zealand Ocean Swim Champion

He came to New Zealand after retirement and began a new role as a swimming teacher. Many years of training and teaching experience have helped him develop an effective learning program, which he used to establish Aqua Artist Swimming School in 2015.


Join us at any one of our conveniently located swim schools at East Tamaki, Onehunga, or Mt Albert where all our instructors have been fully trained and highly motivated in our swim programmes! Our swim school offers classes with a limited number of students to ensure that you or your child receives maximum attention from the instructor. The classes are run by school terms and school holidays in duration from 30 – 60 minutes. Students will be assessed by the experienced Supervisors while they learn. As soon as they meet the criteria, they will be moved to the next level during the term.

Progress is never difficult to see in Aqua Artist!

Aqua Artist is an outstanding swimming school! My kids have been attending lessons here for the past few months, and I couldn't be happier with their progress. The instructors are not only highly skilled but also incredibly patient and encouraging.

My son has been learning at Aqua Artist for nearly two years. He started off as an absolute beginner, afraid of water but has progressed really well and is already learning the fourth stroke. Aqua Artist teaches at their own pace and with their own methods and requirements.

My kids are enjoying swimming here. The teachers are truly professional, focusing on teaching them techniques and building strength. After a term of training, I've noticed significant improvement in my kids.
