Jewish teenager Sam Horowitz earned himself an encore after a video of his lavishly choreographed bar mitzvah dance went viral.

The Dallas youth appeared Thursday on ABC’s Good Morning America, where he was joined by back up dancers to re-enact the most memorable moment from his step into manhood, which took place last November.

According to the boy’s mom, Horowitz had been planning the occasion for a good portion of his young life.

“At a very young age, I took him to his first concert,” Angela Horowitz explained. “Dancers came from the ceiling on chandeliers and he said, ‘Mom, I’m gonna do that for my bar mitzvah.'”
