 Enrollment Info 

Please let Christy Hawkins ( know as soon as possible which classes or class package you intend to enroll in so we can save your seat. 


We intend to continue to limit our virtual classes to a maximum of 14 students, but it is first-come, first-serve. If there is enough of a demand, a second section may become available, which is why we ask you to let us know what you are interested in as soon as possible.


We do require a payment commitment in place before beginning classes. For participants that may seek third-party reimbursement, please utilize the available PDFs.

Part of our mission through our nonprofit, Blue Umbrella Experience, is to make sure our classes and programming are an accessible option for ALL. Therefore, we are happy to provide an invoice and attendance towards third-party reimbursement and work directly with third-party payees whenever possible. We are working towards a class sponsorship program and appreciate any donations to assist with making sure all who would like to take our classes can. Thank you!


We require the enrollment form to be filled out. Please note anything you feel we should know. We also have a release form we ask everyone to complete. You do not need to do this every time you take Classes with us- just the first time.

     Blue Umbrella Experience, Inc. is the nonprofit offering Above and Beyond Community Classes, Inc.  This distinction is necessary so that we are able to focus our fundraising efforts and build our Friends of Ben scholarship with BUE.

     The focus of ABC Classes will be on delivering interactive Community Classes that offer fitness and wellness, creative expression, enrichment, and chances to learn new skills while building a sense of community. 

Please note:

That in signing up for and signing on to any of our classes, even, just a trial class, you agree to release BUE/ABC Class staff and instructors from any and all liability.

For students that choose to take classes with us in person at our Hauppauge location, please know that we will continue to follow the CDC guidelines for the wellbeing of our community. Due to uncertainties in our current health climate and in the interest of the safety of all students and staff, BUE reserves the right to pivot all community class and in-person activity to a purely virtual environment. Please be aware that you agree to this policy as a condition of registration. If by following federal, state, or local guidelines, BUE transitions classes to a virtual environment, we, unfortunately, cannot issue refunds for said classes.


We thank you and we look forward to seeing you in class and our next get-together!
