Britney Spears was a gymnast and a singer during her childhood, and she won many state competitions and children’s talent shows. Spears trained with Béla Károlyi during his gymnastics camp. Spears and her mother Lynne auditioned for the 1990s revival of ‘The Mickey Mouse Club’ when she was eight. Matt Casella rejected her as too young but introduced her to Nancy Carson, a New York talent agent. Lynne Spears and her daughters moved into a sublet apartment in New York soon after Lynne and Carson were impressed with Spears’ singing and suggested enrolling her at the Professional Performing Arts School.
Spears was hired as Tina Denmark’s understudy in the off-Broadway musical ‘Ruthless’ for her first professional role! Additionally, she appeared on the television show Star Search and was cast in several commercials.
