Chief Operating OfficerHello! My name is Leigh but the kiddos know me as Coach Sparkles! I am the Chief Operating Officer of Gym Station. I started my journey with Gym Station in 2016 and have had the privilege of holding many titles within the company. I started off as a lead dance coach in DFW, then became the Assistant Director, Dance Director, then Director of Operations and now Chief Operating Officer! My passion for teaching children started in highschool when I taught competitive dance teams. I went on to receive a BFA in dance from The University of North Texas and moved to Chicago to teach Hubbard Street's Youth Dance Program. Once I moved back to DFW and started working for Gym Station, I quickly found that my passion for teaching children had grown in so many ways! Getting to teach not only dance but gymnastics, sports and fitness to children has been an absolute joy! I get to share the importance of living a healthy active lifestyle with hundreds of children each week and that makes my job awesome!
Director of OperationsHi, my name is Sharity, but the kids know me as Coach Strawberry! I have a B.S. in Nutrition and Dietetics from Louisiana Tech University and a M.S. in Human Nutrition at the University of Houston. I began dancing at the age of 3 and was a member of my jr. high, high school and college dance teams. In my free time, I enjoy painting, drawing, dancing, and competing in pageants. I have been working with kids in various roles since I was 11 years old (VBS, dance camps, P.E. teacher, etc.). I love making them smile and laugh and I especially love seeing the excitement in their eyes when they learn something new! I am really looking forward to growing with your little ones everyday as they learn to dance, flip, and play sports!
