SPNSR Spotlight: Midwood Martial Arts & Family Fitness Center

Midwood Martial Arts 2

Midwood Martial Arts & Family Fitness Center was established eight years ago in 2006. Shihan Alfred DiGrazia has run karate schools for over 25 years. When MMA moved to Flatbush we invited a group of martial artists, fitness and enrichment instructors to share the arts we love with people of all ages in a 20 x 40 matted space on the corner of E13th St and Avenue H. Both our teachers and our students reflect the diverse area we live in. We also offer women-only classes for the religious women (both Jewish and Muslim) who cannot train with men. We appreciate the community that we live in and the one we have created in our school and are delighted to give back through affordable classes without contracts, free pre-school storytime, and sponsorship of the Flatbush Frolic.

Latin Fever Dance Studio 2Latin Fever Dance Studio 1

Marisol Ramirez opened Latin Fever Dance Studio in 2004. The studio provides dance lessons for children and adults, serving a diverse population in its Ditmas Park Neighborhood. They teach Hip-Hop, Salsa, Tap, Ballet, Pop and Creative Movement starting with children as young as 2 ½ years old. Latin Fever is a great stepping stone for kids; some of their students have moved on to the Ailey program, and talent based schools such as Mark Twain and Laguardia (which her son currently attends).

This Sunday at the Frolic watch Latin Fever turn the fun on with dance shows and dance demonstrations. Located at the main stage at Rugby and Cortelyou Road at 2pm and at 3pm in Front of Latin Fever Dance Studio.
