In 1969 a jazz dance teacher in Evanston, Illinois first came up with her idea to modify traditional dance moves to create a fun and effective total body fitness program. This instructor, named Judi Sheppard Missett, took the concept - which she called Jazzercise - to California with her when she moved there in 1977. The unique workout program was popular among fellow instructors and their students and by 1982, Jazzercise had become a franchised company. Now a well known institution of dance infused exercise programs, Jazzercise Inc. has trained more than 5,000 instructors in Judi’s signature methods.
