The Y Dance Program has been motivating and helping our community for over 10 years by providing a nurturing environment, where boys and girls ages 2 through adult, can learn to appreciate dance as a lifelong activity for self-expression, grace, strength, agility, creativity, and balance. Through our trained and competent leaders, your child will receive a quality dance experience that will grow their confidence as they form new friendships that could last a lifetime. Our program includes classes for beginners through advanced for both performing and non-performing students.
The Performing Dance Program is based on a 9-month curriculum that encourages dance skill progression provides consistent instruction at each level. Much like an academic school, students build on what they learn from week to week. We encourage parents to register their children for classes by the Fall and remain in the same class for the duration of the year. This dance experience culminates with a recital in June. Participants in this program must be facility members.
The Lakewood-Trumbull YMCA gymnastics team has been inspiring and helping children achieve their goals since the 1980’s. Through the years the Y has produced multiple State and Regional champions as well as State and Regional team championships. Our gymnasts learn, through fun and discipline, the ability to achieve their goals. We believe that if a child believes in themselves and trains hard, then anything, even the amazing sport of Gymnastics can be achieved.
Gymnastics is a long-standing tradition of YMCAs and we provide exceptional gymnastic experiences for all ages and abilities. Our leadership team is dedicated to programs that increase agility, flexibility and strength while the utilizing the unique amenities of our 6,000 square foot facility. All participants have the opportunity to develop their ability through the use of an in-ground trampoline, full-sized TumbleTrak, and 400 square foot foam safety pit. Through the use of female and male Olympic equipment, the Lakewood-Trumbull YMCA’s team is able to deliver a program that creates life-long memories and community.
Team sports at the Y build character and self-esteem. Participants cultivate values, skills, and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health, and educational achievement. Kids will not only learn the fundamentals and how to work together on a team, but also who they are and what they can achieve.
Our programs include gymnastics, dance, soccer, basketball, baseball, tennis and more. We also offer more advanced classes for children who have taken our sports classes before.
