Hi

We have the new Wiggles Lets Eat DVD, and we (DH and I) have noticed that a lot of the dancers have changed, in fact we dont really recognise any of them except for one woman.

WE love Ben Murray he has soo much energy and seems excited all the time, which my DS loves.

It got us thinking has he left, does anyone know? We were hoping that he would be part of the show this year as we are taking our kids for the first time.

He is the blonde guy with the spikey hair.

What do you think?

Cheers

Julie

His home page lists his wiggly commitments to 2009, and some other shows for 2010 that are 'grown up' in nature. I don't think you'll see him at the concert this year - but he may choreograph stuff later on, who knows?!

AFAIK a "band" like The Wiggles that required dancers can change their dancers as many times as
they wish without making public announcement.
You could always email the official site of the Wiggles and ask abt him?

He's my favourite. We have got heaps of the older wiggles DVDs and he's in them. I love how enthusiastic he is and DD1 loves him too.

Hell yes. If you lower yourself to watch one of the older episodes or DVD's you will be laughing in your seat. Ben is so animated that he is often more interesting than the actual Wiggles.  laugh.gif He has over exagerated dance moves and a big, silly grin on his face.

Pretty sure he wasn't at last years concerts (both mid year and Christmas)...and he definitely wasn't at this years mid year ones.

I am sure there will be lots of regulars in the show that your little one might recognise, but I guess noone has energy quite like Ben Murray laughing2.gif

We have most of the DVDs, including the old ones.

I will pay attention to Go Bananas, and Poppin Popcorn now! LOL

We do watch the Wiggle Dancing Concert here a lot!

Shame he wont be there.

Thanks everyone,

Julie
