The Federation of Italian American Organizations of Brooklyn (FIAO) is sponsoring free ballroom dance instruction classes for teens and seniors for its 16th year in a row.

Led by indefatigable dance instructor Carmine Santa Maria, classes are held Wednesday nights beginning October 1 and run through late June at the Beacon Community Center auditorium at Seth Low IS 96, 99 Avenue P between West 11th Street and West 12th Street. The three hour classes begin at 6:00pm.

Santa Maria, who leads the instruction along with advanced students from previous classes, has been teaching ballroom dancing for close to 60 years.

Partners are not necessary to learn basic Meringue, Foxtrot, Tango, Cha Cha and Swing moves, he says, and advanced students practice their Peabody, Rumba, Mambo, Waltz and Samba steps alongside the newcomers.

“You learn to dance by dancing and teaching each other,” says Santa Maria. “But I’ll always be there watching and correcting,” he said, according to a release.

Call Director Joe Rizzi at (718) 232-2266 to sign up and learn more.

The Wildlife Conservation Society’s New York Aquarium Education Department and Partnerships for Parks’ Catalyst Program invite you to participate as they conduct a shoreline survey of various types of marine debris, work to keep our local beach free of debris by picking up trash and contribute to a healthy ocean that both people and wildlife can benefit from.

The event will be held from 1:00pm to 4:00pm, Saturday, September 27, at the beach at Kaiser Park, near West 33rd Street and Bayview Avenue. The event is recommended for ages six and up. An adult must accompany children between the ages six and 14 at all times.

All participants must complete and sign a photo release form and a volunteer waiver upon checking in for this event. Both of these types of forms can be found on the NYA Education webpage at www.nyaquarium.com/nyaeducation. Youth ages six to 17 must have a parent or guardian sign the volunteer waiver on their behalf.
