Instructors are franchisees
Every certified instructor is a franchisee. Jazzercise offers two types of franchises: Owner Instructor or Associate Instructor.  You can also choose to teach ONLY Jazzercise Lite or Junior Jazzercise.

  • Owner Instructor
    An Owner Instructor owns and teaches classes. Many Owner Instructors also hire Associate Instructors to teach classes. Owner Instructors are certified to teach all class formats, or they are certified to teach only Jazzercise Lite or Junior Jazzercise.
  • Associate Instructor
    Associate Instructors may teach all formats. An Associate Instructor may also be certified to teach only Junior Jazzercise or Jazzercise Lite. An Associate Instructor teaches class for an Owner Instructor or business franchisee.
  • Jazzercise Lite and Junior Jazzercise Instructors
    An instructor who chooses to teach ONLY Jazzercise Lite or Junior Jazzercise may not teach any other format. This certification requires training specific to these formats. An addendum is attached to the instructor’s franchise agreement restricting the class format they may teach. Jazzercise Lite Instructors and Junior Jazzercise Instructors can choose to be either an Owner Instructor or an Associate Instructor.
