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 Rainbow

Hello! My name is Jordan but your little ones know me as Coach Rainbow! I have had experience in Early Childhood Education/Physical Education with schools, daycares, gyms, and sports clubs in DFW for over a decade. I love inspiring my students, building relationships and supporting them as they learn and advance in their physical abilities. I am committed to providing a positive and fun environment for your little ones as they enhance their behavioral and multimodal skills.

Coach Smiley

Hi there! My name is Dede, but your kids know me as Coach Smiley. I started my dance and fitness journey 9 years ago when I joined my high school drill team. I then went on to attend the University of Texas at Arlington where I received a Bachelor of Arts in Developmental Psychology and continued dancing on the UTA Dance Team. I’ve always had a passion for dance, fitness, and working with children. Here at the Gym Station I have the wonderful opportunity to combine all three! I am very excited to share my love for dance and fitness with your children every week.

Coach Star

Hi! I’m Coach Star! I started dancing at the age of 3 and quickly fell in love with performing and learning. I’ve performed in the nutcracker with the Donetsk ballet and I attended Stockton University in New Jersey where I performed with the Stockton Dance Company and also on my college dance team. We performed at home basketball games as well as half time shows for the Philadelphia 76ers. I’ve been lucky enough to teach children dance and gymnastics for over 10 years! I love teaching children to believe in themselves, to try new things and to just be their best! I’m so excited to meet your little ones and encourage them to love dance, sports, gymnastics and fitness!
It’s RIBBON DANCER time! We Are working very hard on our Recital dances in Dance Adventures! We celebrate our hard work with some quality ribbon dancer time! .
