We’ll be expanding and changing our program offerings as time goes on, so be sure to stay in touch. You can sign up to receive frequent updates regarding upcoming classes, new curriculum, updated resources and opportunities to network with your friends and the larger community.

Unlocking Access

We know that when all users have access to fully participate and engage in online experiences in their own way, we all benefit. That’s why we have designed The Beat to be accessible, inclusive and welcoming to people with disabilities, including but not limited to those with impaired vision or hearing, physical disabilities and diverse approaches to learning.

Should you experience any difficulty accessing our online classes or web resources please reach out to our team at for guidance and technical support.
