‘Star Trek’ star George Takei had much to celebrate after finding out that donors had contributed over $158,000 for his new Broadway project, ‘Allegiance’.

Takei treated fans and supporters to a video of his ‘happy dance’ to thank them for their help. Set to the tune of LMFAO‘s hit, ‘Sexy and I Know It’, the actor spun around his apartment showcasing moves that ranged from funky to hilarious.

“I am thrilled beyond words,” said the former Celebrity Apprentice,”that we were successful in raising over $158,000 for our Broadway-bound musical titled ‘Allegiance’, which for the first time deals with the internment of Japanese Americans during the second World War.”

Takei has been involved in the project since meeting creators Jay Kuo and Lorenzo Thione at a performance of hit musical ‘In the Heights’. The writers were so moved by the actor’s detailing of his father’s struggle to help his family while they were being held at the Rohwer Relocation Center in Arkansas, that they were inspired to create an entire musical based around the story.

The show is set to premiere in San Diego on September 16. Watch Takei’s full dance video below.
