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 Glitter

Hi, I am Francine but your kids call me “Coach Glitter”! I am a New York native, who was raised in North Carolina, and am now in Texas pursuing my teaching career. I earned my bachelor’s degree in Dance as well as my K-12 Teaching Licensure at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro. I have been dancing for well over a decade and I am a trained dance teacher who has taught various ages in contemporary, jazz, hip-hop, ballet, liturgical, and many more movement exploration classes for over five years. I discovered Gym Station and automatically became intrigued with the fun approach to teaching fitness, sports, and dance to students. I love cultivating and supporting the little gifts inside children and motivating them to do their best work! I am so excited to teach and watch your little ones growth through fitness and fun!
