I couldn't hold off until Friday to write this, so I'm sharing early :)
Here we are on Day 2 already- which was how I felt in the moment as well. SAD! My trip was half over ALREADY! haha. I'm so stupid. I still had yet to meet Britney and was already worried about leaving for home. I really need to learn how to live in the moment, ya think??
So, after Day 1 of singing lessons and a new BCBG outfit, I just KNEW there had to be dancing involved this day! Britney is known for her dancing skillzzzz.
We did the usual routine- met the crew in the hotel lobby, who at this point we had fallen in love with, and did some footage of us climbing into our chauffeured SUV. We drove to North Hollywood and parked down the block from our next surprise. I loved that the crew tried to keep it all a secret each day! I'm a girl who loves surprises, but I always end up being too smart and figuring it out. I used to be that way with Christmas growing up! My mom could NEVER surprise me. I always just KNEW what I was going to get.
This day I happened to see a sign near where we were that said "Millenium Parking." Millenium?? As in, THE dance studio to the stars? I started freaking out! This would be a DREAM for me as I love to dance and dancing to Britney is a hobby of mine I do on the regular. lol.
After about 20 minutes of waiting, we were finally driven around front and hopped out. I started squealing when I saw, that in FACT, we were going to Millennium Studios for a dance lesson!!!
We walked into a smaller dance room where a woman was dancing to a song- I didn't recognize her at first, but as I got closer I was surprised to see I had seen her before! Her name was Ava Bernstine and she had danced with Britney several times, on her Circus and Femme Fatal tour and one of my FAVORITE tour dances (Hot As Ice) included this woman! PSYCHED!!!
She ended up teaching me (and Nathan joined in later) quite a few 8 counts to "Til the World Ends." I can pick up moves pretty quickly since I have SOME dance background, but this was a pretty fast dance! Had to go through it a few times. We asked her how long she usually has to learn this amount of moves for an audition and she said about 30 minutes. I could totally do it! :) Loved every second of this surprise!
We ate at a restaurant on The Sunset Strip (where our hotel was) called The Eveleigh. Delicious!
The next morning, I would have one more surprise planned and then meet Britney Spears!! Can't wait to share the last part with you guys!
More to come, Part 4....tomorrow or Friday.
