Dancer of the Week: Adorable Girl Dances With “Mary Poppins” Character At Disney World
Who: Marceline Raider
Why we picked them: This little girl has clearly seen “Mary Poppins“ more than once!
On a recent trip to Disney World, 2-year-old Marceline Raider drew a crowd when she started dancing with her favorite Mary Poppins character, Bert, once portrayed by actor Dick Van Dyke in the original 1964 film. The Missouri toddler showed him a thing or two about performing leg kicks (our personal favorite!), and happily waddled back and forth like a penguin, enjoying the beloved dance number from the film.
Marceline’s mother, Amanda Raider, tells her local FOX News outlet, the adorable clip is getting a lot of attention and Good Morning America recently featured Marceline’s dance on their YouTube channel.
With the recent release of Mary Poppins Returns, we hope to see more “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” dancing just like Marceline!
Fun Fact: Marceline was named after Walt Disney’s hometown of Marceline, Missouri.
