"I'm thrilled to be coming back to Orlando!," says Laurie Berkner. "I will be bringing my own special kind of musical magic to this wonderful place already filled with so much joy for kids and families. I can’t wait to swim like fish, jump like chipmunks, and march like dinosaurs together!"

A true pioneer in children's music, providing a soundtrack to childhood and memories that last a lifetime, Laurie Berkner will perform songs from a career spanning more than 25 years in the entertainment industry, including "Superhero," "Waiting for the Elevator," and "Chipmunk at the Gas Pump," along with such well-loved hits as "Bumblebee (Buzz Buzz)," "Victor Vito," "We Are The Dinosaurs," "Rocketship Run," "The Goldfish (Let's Go Swimming)," and "Pig On Her Head." Laurie will showcase an array of tunes that encourage kids and grownups alike to get up and dance, including a couple of brand new ones! Kids should plan to bring their dancing shoes and a stuffed animal (for their heads).
