BEDFORD-STUYVESANT — Fitness buffs looking for a little spring in their step will find some Caribbean-inspired moves at a Bed-Stuy studio this March.

Dancer and choreographer Krista Martins brings her Wukkout! class to Bedford Avenue, where students can learn to “wine,” “juk” and “wuk” to soca, calypso and chutney tunes.

The 55-minute sessions are meant to invoke the feeling of a Caribbean carnival, where revelers dance freely in weeklong parades and festivities.

“I grew up loving carnival and going as a young child,” Martins said. “I always wanted to find a way to share the culture with the masses.

“It’s kind of euphoric, like an out of body experience when you’re not even thinking and it’s almost as if the spirit is moving me when I hear a particular song.”
