Making her first public appearance since rehab, Britney Spears took a dance class and enjoyed a sushi dinner with her girlfriends.
Spears took a one-hour hip-hop class at the Millennium Dance Complex in North Hollywood – this after lying low since checking out of rehab at Malibu’s Promises treatment facility on Tuesday.
Wearing nude fishnet stockings with dance boots, black hot pants, a black shirt and a baseball cap over a wig, Spears rolled in with her bitch assistant and bodyguards to take an advanced-level hip-hop class with instructor Darrien Henning.
“The minute she walked in, she basically lit up the room,” Henning said. “I had no idea she was coming, so I was shocked.”
Surprisingly, Jason Filyaw did not accompany her.
Spears, whom Henning described as looking “fantastic,” quietly took a spot in the back of the about 30-person class at the studio’s “Dome.”
“She did the choreography really well,” Henning said, adding, “In fact, she came in and nailed it.”
Just like Isaac Cohen did a few months back. Eh?
And the pop star’s presence in class seemed to serve as an inspiration: “All my students tried harder to get on their game,” Henning said.
Hopefully her stretch of going clubbing commando late last year inspire a whole host of celebs to get on their game in that regard, as well.
Returning to the studio is a homecoming of sorts for Spears, says Millennium Dance Complex owner Robert Baker, who counts Spears as one of his star clients.
“She also comes in to scope talent,” he said. “More than once she’s hired our teachers to choreograph for her.”
We wonder if Brian Friedman is employed there.
Spears then headed to Bel Air fusion Japanese eatery SHU Sushi House Unico to meet up with three girlfriends at around 10 p.m. The four women dined at a table near a window at the front of the restaurant.
Upon leaving, Spears smiled at waiting photographers and gave a friendly wave before heading home alone at about 11:30 p.m.
On Sunday, Spears made another outing – this one presumably not as much fun. She paid a visit to a hospital to see a dentist, her rep says.
But it’s nothing serious, says the rep: “At worst, it’s a toothache.”
At least it’s a real problem, unlike made-up nonsense like hypoglycemia.
