It’s a good story. And 50 years in, it’s still evolving…just like we are.

Jazzercise was the original dance party workout and today we’ve grown into one of the world’s leading dance fitness companies. Our 8,300+ franchisees teach more than 32,000 classes each week around the world. Why are we still here? Because our program can change your body and your life. You’ll feel results after 3 classes and you’ll stay with it. With constantly changing moves, new beats, a variety of classes and calorie-crushing intensity, our workouts get customers to their “after” picture.

Some people still think legwarmers and leotards when they hear Jazzercise. But we left the 80’s behind a long time ago. Want to know more? Click here to learn about us.

Judi Sheppard Missett started the fitness revolution that became Jazzercise in 1969. A seriously inspiring, award-winning, find-your-passion-and-live-it CEO, she runs our company and teaches classes every week.

As Judi’s daughter, Shanna Missett Nelson literally grew up with Jazzercise. Today she is our company President and a rock star instructor, she develops new moves along with Judi and manages our Jazzercise Fitness Centers in Oceanside and La Costa.
