Our mission... The Palaestra promotes smiles, laughter and a life-long love of movement for every child. We provide a creative environment that stimulates interest while presenting challenges.

The Palaestra opened its doors in June 2001 with 3,400 square feet of space. After three years we moved to our second location in Farmers Branch, Texas, where we were able to expand our programs into a 15,000 square foot facility. After six years in our second location and successfully building a totally “AWESOME” program, The Palaestra is proud to announce that we have a permanent home! 24,000 square feet dedicated to promoting one of the largest and most talented Trampoline and Tumbling Programs in the country. The Palaestra is also proud to have a circus program (aerial acrobatics). Becki Weathers is the owner and manager of The Palaestra L.L.C. Ms. Becki, as she is known by all, is helped by family and close friends who share her love for children. The Palaestra's Mission Statement is: "The Palaestra promotes smiles, laughter & a life long love of Movement for every child. We provide a creative environment that stimulates interest while presenting challenges." Please call 972.620.9922 for your complimentary trial class

[04/02/20]   COVID-19 UPDATE!
We will be CLOSED through April 30, 2020

COVID-19 UPDATE, WEDNESDAY, 4/1/2020

Hello Palaestra Families and the many others that might be visiting our website and FB page:

The Palaestra Staff misses y'all so much, but people’s health and safety are our number one concern.

It goes without saying that tele-gymnastics classes are just not the same as running through The Palaestra doors, hopscotching over the purple and yellow lobby tiles, seeing your favorite teacher give you high fives and smiles before your gym class. There’s no better feeling than going out to class with all your friends and getting to bounce, swing and play in the pit!
This is the “True Mission” of The Palaestra!

All that being said let me (Ms. Becki) say a few positive words:
COVID-19 DOES HAVE SOME POSITIVE AFFECTS ON OUR SOCIETY:
FAMILIES- have been brought together (Kids are great, they say and do the darnedest things)
- dinners together again (well breakfast and lunch also)
- we have found many ways to share hugs and kisses from afar
- lots of walking that dog that never got to get out until now
BROTHERS AND SISTERS- some never knew they even had one, now they can:
- go bike riding
- play family games (No monopoly though LOL)
- jigsaw puzzles are back
- made up challenge courses
- backyard fun is a “Thing” again
HUSBANDS & WIFES- Wow, this is a challenge, but reconnecting is a great experience!
- The Palaestra is looking forward to a surge in Baby Classes come Fall 2021, LOL!
- Ms. Becki will be there with lots of smiles and “old Songs”
COMMUNITY- Social Distancing is not easy, but necessary.
- “Together, Yet Apart” Do Your Duty!

Thank you again for your continued support of The Palaestra! We will be ready for your return with lots of FUN, FRIENDSHIP, AND GYMNASTICS!

AGAIN- there will be NO charges processed until we return- your class spot is secure unless you have requested a drop procedure.

STAY HOME, STAY SAFE
PRACTICE LOVE, KINDNESS, AND COURAGE AS WE GO FORWARD
THE PALAESTRA

[03/20/20]   COVID-19 UPDATE, FRIDAY, 3/20/2020

We will be CLOSED on March 16-April 3, 2020

PALAESTRA FAMILIES – GOSH, I MISS ALL OF YOU, ESPECIALLY MY BABIES!!!

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this unprecedented time in our city, our state, and our country.

On Thursday, March 19th, 2020, Governor Gregg Abbott and the Texas State Health Department issued a Public Health Disaster Declaration. This declaration will help to achieve the goals of the CDC and President Trump in order to meet the Higher Standards set forth to fight the COVID -19 VIRUS.

The Palaestra, helping in the fight against this virus and in accordance with the Declaration, will suspend all operations (recreational classes, team practices, and all other activities) through April 3, 2020, midnight. At that time we will assess the situation and any possible extensions.

Families, please note, all class spots will be secure through this time (and beyond if necessary), all charges will also be suspended until after April 30th, 2020. I will be sending a personal email to all families enrolled to explain the handling of the tuition payments.

Thank you again for remaining Strong, Supportive and Understanding; and to your commitment to The Palaestra in the fight against COVID-19.

WE ARE PALAESTRA STRONG AND WILL BE HERE FOR YOUR FAMILY AND CHILDREN WHEN THIS IS OVER!!!!

MS. BECKI
