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 Bubbles

Hi! My name is Ashlynn, but the kids know me as Coach Bubbles. I have lived in Texas my whole life and have been dancing since the age of three. After having practiced ballet, tap, jazz and modern dance throughout my childhood, I went on to receive a Bachelors in Dance studies from Texas Woman’s University. I have always loved children and throughout my college career I discovered my passion for working with children and teaching them dance. I am excited to get to know your kids and share my passion with them.

Coach Bunny

Hi friends! My name is Raechel but the kids know me as Coach Bunny. I grew up in the beautiful state of Washington where I have been dancing ballet, jazz, modern dance, and tap since I was eight years old. I then went on to graduate from Brigham Young University-Idaho with a bachelors in Dance Pedagogy where I learned that I love to teach. When I had the opportunity to move to Texas to continue my dream of teaching dance to kids, I found The Gym Station! I get to share my passion for dance with kids everyday and it’s fantastic!

Coach Flash

What’s up!! My name is Davyon, my friends know me as “DC,” but the kids know me as Coach Flash! My passion for community outreach and development has fueled my purpose to teach kiddos life lessons through sports. I have coached basketball at both collegiate and high school levels. Joining The Gym Station has been such a rewarding experience as I have been able to serve an entirely new group of kids. I am so excited to continue building the foundation that parents have already started to build within their children.

Coach Goofy

Hi! My name is Au’Moni but the little ones know me as Coach Goofy. I am a Texas, born and raised, athlete who’s been playing sports my whole life and love it! I have played almost every major sport but track and basketball were my strong suits. I’ve been working with kids ever since 2018 and have enjoyed every second of it. I joined Gym Station to share my knowledge of sports & fitness through the best way possible: fun! I look forward to teaching your kiddos!

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 Smiley

Hello! My name is Terrance but the kiddos know me as Coach Smiley (because I love to smile). I was born and raised in Texas and have been playing sports since I could walk. I started coaching sports on a middle school level in 2015 and that’s when I knew my calling was with the kiddos. I never looked back! One of the reasons why I joined the Gym Station was because I wanted to coach and teach at the earliest child level. When your kiddos grow up they will be 100% be ready because Coach Smiley taught them everything they know - all while having FUN, FUN, FUN at the same time. Remember, don’t forget to smile!!
