Britney Spears' world tour
Britney Spears is rehearsing for a new world tour.
The troubled singer, who has been training hard at Los Angeles' Millennium Dance Complex, is planning to showcase her new album 'Blackout' with a series of international shows.
A source close to the singer told the New York Post newspaper: "Britney will be leaving the country in the next few weeks, after training in privacy for a month. She is planning a global tour."
Britney is also putting her dancing skills to good use in another way - by teaching children.
The mother-of-two voluntarily taught a class of eight children, aged from four to nine, dances including 'the fish', 'the swim' and 'the choo-choo train' on Monday night (11.02.08).
A studio insider said: "When Britney first arrived she went up to each child and asked them their name and whether they liked Madonna, because that was the song they would be dancing to this evening."
Britney was accompanied by an assistant in the class, and after teaching them routines, she asked them to "freestyle" their own moves.
Maya Meek, whose eight-year-old son was in the class, told America's OK! magazine: "My son didn't really know who Britney was, though he dances to all of her music. So when I told him, 'This is the lady who makes all the songs you like,' he got very excited!"
This isn't the first time 26-year-old Britney had volunteered at the complex. She often pops in to lend her skills and advice to keen dancers.
