Here is something I bet you did not know. Some military personnel who have transitioned out of the military have taken a fast-track training program at Fred Astaire Dance Studios. In just a few months (that’s right MONTHS) they have gone from knowing little-to-nothing about dance to being actual dance instructors. In a VERY short amount of time they moved up to managing, owning a franchise and now to being among the top producing studios in the company. What we have found at Forward March Inc. is that military personnel are especially suited not only for the training and becoming instructors themselves, but becoming highly successful in the company.  Forward March Inc. has an outstanding relationship with our customer Fred Astarie Dance Studios. You owe it to yourself to check out our previous post to learn more about the outstanding opportunities for employment and even franchise ownership with them.


We are looking for high-energy individuals who enjoy personal training and working in the fitness industry for positions in our company.

Do you have strong leadership and management skills and training? You will need to be able to lead small teams of 5 to 7 instructors/trainers on a daily schedule. You will also need to be able to present packages to clients and enroll them into our programs. Career advancement is available. You can also further your career through franchise opportunities. Income potential can be up to $100,000.


Would you like to be your own boss? Are you looking for real opportunities that present long term careers and financial freedom? Come and join the ranks of those who work for themselves. Join this franchise system and start living your dream. This franchise started in 1947 and has been one of the top franchise systems in the country since.
