Above and Beyond Community Classes, Inc.

Take a class... join a community.

  Welcome To Above and Beyond Community Classes, offered through our (pending) nonprofit, Blue Umbrella Experience, Inc. 

      In just under a year, our community has grown to over 80 students! And that has been done with a lot of love and laughter- virtually! 

      This summer, we are excited to announce that our community can continue to grow within our NEW space at 150 Motor Parkway, Hauppauge, where we will offer virtual, hybrid, and in-person classes.

      Enrollment is thoughtfully limited for personalized attention so please email our director, Christy Hawkins at chawkins@buexperience.org as soon as you choose your summer courses.  Those that register early will also receive EIGHT FREE CLASSES during our June 14th- June 25th intersession.  Flyers for our summer series can be found under Our Classes - Summer Series and will run Monday, June 28th- August 20th. 

      In honor of our one-year anniversary this summer, we will be offering 8 weeks of classes for the price of 7 weeks. We are grateful to be growing alongside you as you strive towards meaningful social connections and an enriching, independent life!


We look forward to seeing you!
