"I never thought anything like this would ever happen," says Sabrina Bruno. "I'm very nervous, but I'm also very excited. I mean, millions of people will be watching and be there. I mean, it's something I never would have dreamed of."
Saranac High School Junior Sabrina Bruno only started dancing a few years ago. She jumped at the chance to apply for a spot on the field during the Super Bowl Halftime show.
"When I did get the email, honestly I cried. I couldn't believe something like this could happen to somebody who lives in such a small place and nothing ever happens," she says.
Her teacher, Heather van Arsdel owns Center Stage Dance Studio and is a former Knicks City dancer for the NBA team. After being invited to perform herself, she asked if some of her dancers could apply too. There were some qualifications, including age.
"Sixteen to 25 and they wanted a head shot. So they wanted to see what everyone looked like and they wanted their measurements and then their dancing history," van Arsdel says.
Plattsburgh High School Junior Maya Brown has been dancing since she was three years old.
"The rush that I feel when I'm on stage performing that's like one of the best feelings in the world to me," she says.
And now she will be on one of the biggest stages there is along with Sabrina, Arianna Hicks from Beekmantown High School and college student Amanda Plessis-Belir.
The have been at MetLife Stadium for six hour rehearsals for the past few days and now they're ready to go. Unless they can get a ticket, family and friends will see the halftime show just like us -- on TV.
"This is as real as it gets and as professional as it gets and as high level as it gets," says van Arsdel.
Arianna says, dancing in the halftime show is a dream come true.
"Plus, my favorite team is in the Super Bowl so it's even better," she says. "Denver Broncos!"
