A health-care worker apparently needed a break during his shift recently — a dance break.
University of Utah Hospital phlebotomist slipped off his shoes and performed an impromptu ballet.
Teva Martinson had gone on break to grab a drink from Starbucks with a co-worker when he came upon a volunteer pianist playing in the hospital, KSTU reported.
Martinson, who had been working at the hospital for only four months, asked the musician if she could play anything that would go with a ballet.
That’s where this performance was born.
“I’ve gotten to see some low moments. I’ve gotten to see some really high moments but overall I think everyone is just trying to work together to keep a positive, joyous mood in the hospital,” Martinson told KSTU. “I did it because I wanted to. I felt like it was something right for me, just to, like, do something and make someone smile. You know, to enjoy myself.”
Martinson told the station he was surprised by his viral fame.
His dance video was even shared nationally by “Good Morning America” this week.
