Jazzercise is a popular form of exercise which combines popular dance moves with specific fitness workouts.  Jazzercise workouts provide cardiovascular exercise, strength training, and dance instruction.  It began from Jazz dance classes taught by Judi Sheppard Missett in the 1960s which have evolved over time into the popular exercise format known as Jazzercise.

Traditional Jazzercise sessions are around one-hour long and are generally led by certified instructors.  Jazzercise sessions begin with warm-ups followed by 30 minutes of aerobic dance moves which may incorporate hand weights.  The sessions typically end with a period of stretching.   Jazzercise sessions are energized by popular music chosen by the instructor. 

Jazzercise incorporates a variety of aerobic activities such  jazz dance, hip-hop, resistance training, Pilates, yoga, and kickboxing.  Various  class formats, such as Jazzercise Body Sculpting and Jazzercise Express, have developed to target specific fitness goals.
