About Jazzercise Inc.
While teaching traditional jazz dance classes in Evanston, Illinois, in 1969, Judi Sheppard Missett turned her students away from the mirrors and started a "just for fun" class that incorporated dance moves to provide aerobic exercise. After moving to Southern California, she started training other instructors in the Jazzercise program in 1977. Six years later, the company began franchising. Now Jazzercise's CEO, she continues to teach weekly Jazzercise classes and choreograph new dance routines.
Based in Carlsbad, California, Jazzercise's instructors teach its total-body conditioning program to almost half a million participants each year in the United States and more than 30 other countries.
Jazzercise instructors are trained and certified before becoming franchised.
