Jazzercise Redding is proud to take part in leading global dance fitness company Jazzercise, Inc.’s new initiative for 2017 that supports the growth and development of young women by offering free classes to girls aged 16-21. Dubbed GirlForce, the program aims to empower young women by giving them a place to get fit, learn healthy habits, and find a place they belong in their communities.
Jazzercise CEO and Founder Judi Sheppard Missett attended the State of Women Summit hosted by the White House in June 2016 when a “light bulb went off” after hearing so many amazing speakers talk about the importance of helping girls as they grow up. GirlForce launches January 2017 with participating Jazzercise locations encouraging teens and college-aged women to join the movement and learn to “dance their own path.”
“As a mom of a teenage girl, I know that young women confront unique challenges,” says Jazzercise Redding co-owner Molly Redmon. “At Jazzercise we know what physical activity does for us. We are excited to take part in GirlForce and offer girls a safe place to have fun, get fit so they can become strong women and find their place in the world.”
While Jazzercise, Inc and its franchisees have raised over $28MM for charities over their 47 year history, this the first time the company has developed a corporate initiative. Girls who are interested in joining the GirlForce can find more information at www.jazzercise.com/GirlForce or by contacting Jazzercise Redding at firstname.lastname@example.org, (530) 222-1907.
