LOS ANGELES – Britney Spears was back in the dance studio Tuesday night teaching a class of 15 kids ... and she was a hit.
"I like Britney,” 5-year-old Elissa Bouganim, who has taken three classes with the pop star, told People magazine. “Today, first we were dancing slow, and then faster and faster ... Then we did the fish-move and lots of other fun things."
Spears, 26, has become a semi-regular instructor at the Millennium Dance Complex in the past month.
"It's just amazing to watch Britney with the kids," Elissa's mother, Pam, told People. "Elissa won't stop dancing now, that's all she wants to do. Britney has really inspired her."
Elissa even gave Spears a gift during Tuesday's class.
"It was a picture of [Peter Pan's] Tinkerbell," she told People. "And she gave me a hug."
Elissa also said she wants to dance with Britney "all the time."
"Britney is nice," she told the magazine. "I want to dance with Britney all the time because it's so much fun."
