GREEN BAY — William Shakespeare once said, “all the world’s a stage” and a young boy from Green Bay is proving your stage can be a grocery store frozen food aisle.

According to a Facebook fundraiser page, Kyu was born with a “cerebral arteriovenous malformation (AVM) — a tangle of abnormal blood vessels connecting arteries and veins in the brain.”

Before going in for a scheduled surgery on Wednesday, June 5, Kyu recruited his grandfather for an impromptu dance session at a Green Bay grocery store.

With his red pajamas and matching light-up shoes on, Kyu and his grandpa — who dressed a bit more formal for the occasion — busted a move all the way up and down the store aisle.

Here’s how the whole ordeal went down, according to Kyu’s mom:

Kyu: Grandpa, let’s go dancing!
Grandpa: Now?
Kyu: Yeah, it’ll be fun!
Grandpa: Okay.
*Grandpa changed out of his PJ*
*Kyu stayed in his PJ*
*Pulls up to Festival Foods*
Grandpa: Do you guys need to buy something?
Kyu: No grandpa, we dance here in the groceries store.
Grandpa: Here? People are going to think we’re crazy!
Kyu: People? What people?
Grandpa: I thought we were going to a party or a club.
Kyu: Grandpa, Use your imagination. You can dance anywhere!

A statement we should all live by: “You can dance anywhere!”

Kyu’s mom said in the Facebook post: “Thanks dad for being such a good sport for Kyu and giving him all of your time before his surgery tomorrow. It was pretty fun!”

Kyu’s mom said his surgery went “better than doctors had anticipated,” and he’s now recovering.
