Recreational, Performance, and Competitive Dance at the Y

Our Y dance program has been encouraging dancers of over ten years, and our dance instructors love what they do.  Each of our instructors has more than twenty years of dance experience, as well as some incredible technical training all the way to the collegiate level.  These dedicated teachers will help the dancers to grow in self-expression, grace, strength, agility, creativity, and balance.  All performing classes will participate in our year-end recital.  Our recreational classes are also offered year-round.  The Company Y Competitive Dance Team not only practices diligently in many styles of dance, but they attend an average of four competitions per season, often advancing to nationals.  Whatever level of commitment is right for you, the Y has your back!

In order to participate in our performance and competitive dance programs, the dancer must be a facility member.  Styles offered are:

Hip Hop
Musical Theater
Virtual (via Zoom)

Martial Arts


The Lakewood-Trumbull YMCA has a long tradition using the martial arts style of Cheezic Tang Soo Do, developing physical defense, high personal standards, respect and         discipline of mind, body, and spirit.  Our 8th Degree Belt, Master David DeGuzman, leads the students in self-defense, while following the CDC, OEC, and State guidelines.  We   offer a variety of classes beginning at age 4.

Lakewood-Trumbull Gymnastics Team

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.

Youth Sports

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.
