New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie showed off his dancing skills at the Apollo Theater fundraiser hosted by Jamie Foxx over the weekend in the Hamptons.

Chris Christie Dances At Fundraiser

While enjoying the concert from the audience, Christie was called up on stage by Foxx, who said, “Christie, I know you got a dance in you,” according to the New York Post. Being a good sport and taking up the challenge, Christie climbed up and busted a few moves for the audience. Joining him onstage – in addition to Paul McCartney and Spike Lee – was Sen. John McCain.

“Its always the ones you don’t expect,” Foxx told Page Six about the people who dance at the benefit. “Republicans love to dance — in the Hamptons.” Incidentally, last year Colin Powell made headlines with his dance at the event.
