Coach Sparkles

Director of Operations

My name is Leigh but the kiddos know me as Coach Sparkles! I have been dancing ever since I could walk and have developed a passion for teaching children and sharing my love for dance. After fifteen years of training and performing multiple dance styles, I went on to receive a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance from the University of North Texas. Upon graduating college, I got my dream internship working with the Hubbard Street Youth Dance Program in Chicago, IL. After a year of working with the youth dance program and taking class from world famous choreographers in Chicago, I decided to move back to the best state ever to continue my career in dance education. I started my journey with Gym Station in 2016 and my passion for teaching children has grown in so many ways! I started out as a dance coach and then had the opportunity to coach Flippers, Sports, and Fitness!  I was Gym Station's Dance Director for two years and am now the Director of Operations for the DFW area. I get to share the importance of living a healthy, active lifestyle with hundreds of children each week and that makes my job AWESOME!

Coach Peanut

Hi! My name is Chelsea but the kids know me as Coach Peanut. I have lived in Texas my whole life and love sports. I've played basketball, volleyball, softball and ran track since I was 5 years old and started dancing when I was twelve. I earned my Bachelor's degree in Kinesiology at Prairie View A&M University and have been working with children since my sophomore year of college. I joined The Gym Station team because I love working with kids and am thrilled to share my knowledge and love of sports, fitness, and dance. It’s so exciting to see children learn new things while having fun!

Coach Kitty

Hi there! My name is Caroline but your kiddos know me as Coach Kitty! I am a born and raised Texas girl with a passion for working with children. I grew up trying every sport under the sun but dance and volleyball were my thing! I love to go hiking, hang with friends and family, and spend time with my cat, Ollie! I am looking forward to getting to know your little ones and teaching them some awesome stuff!
