(Newser) – Britney Spears has become a semi-regular children's dance instructor at a North Hollywood studio—and her students love her. "Britney is nice," 5-year-old Elissa Bouganim tells People. "I want to dance with Britney all the time because it's so much fun." Elissa gave the on-the-mend pop princess a picture of Tinkerbell to show her gratitude.

“Today, first we were dancing slow, and then faster and faster," Elissa elaborates, adding, "then we did the fish-move and lots of other fun things." Parents appear to be on the 26-year-old's bandwagon, too. "Elissa won't stop dancing now, that's all she wants to do," her mother says. "Britney has really inspired her."
