I want that, when I press m the camera to move around an Object but to keep looking at it.
Here are som pics: https://imgur.com/a/jU8Kj6a

Code:

extends KinematicBody

export var moveSpeed : float = 5.0
var vel : Vector3 = Vector3()

onready var camera = get_node("CameraOrbit")
onready var kaijuNodeAnim = get_node("CameraOrbit/Kaiju_Model_Anim2").get_node("AnimationPlayer")
onready var kaijuNodeModel = get_node("CameraOrbit/Kaiju_Model_Anim2")
onready var cameraOrbitNodeCamera = get_node("CameraOrbit").get_node("Camera")

func _physics_process(delta):
    vel.x = 0
    vel.x = 0

    var input = Vector3()
    if Input.is_action_pressed("ui_up"):
        input.x += 1
        kaijuNodeAnim.play("Walk")
    elif Input.is_action_pressed("ui_down"):
        input.x -= 1
        kaijuNodeAnim.play("Walk")
    elif Input.is_action_pressed("ui_right"):
        input.z += 1
        kaijuNodeAnim.play("Walk")
    elif Input.is_action_pressed("ui_left"):
        input.z -= 1
        kaijuNodeAnim.play("Walk")
    elif Input.is_action_pressed("ui_m"):
        kaijuNodeAnim.play("Dance")
        cameraOrbitNodeCamera.translate(Vector3(cos(OS.get_ticks_msec()*0.01) * PI, 0, sin(OS.get_ticks_msec()*0.01)*PI))
    else:
        kaijuNodeAnim.play("Idle")

    input = input.normalized()

    var dir = (transform.basis.z * input.z + transform.basis.x * input.x)

    vel.x = dir.x * moveSpeed
    vel.z = dir.z * moveSpeed

    vel = move_and_slide(vel, Vector3.UP)

var target = $target_object

$Camera.lookat(target.getglobal_transform().origin, Vector3.UP)

Thanks! Works good. Now, for extra kudos, how can I make it that when I stop pressing "m" it returns to its original position?

Try

var first_pos = null

func _ready():
    first_pos = cameraOrbitNodeCamera.global_transform.origin
    //Or
    // first_pos = cameraOrbitNodeCamera.transform.origin
pass

/////////////

    else:
    kaijuNodeAnim.play("Idle")
    cameraOrbitNodeCamera.transform.origin = first_pos
