If you’re not already familiar with the concept of “showtime,” here’s a rundown: On Friday and Saturday nights, teens and dance groups take over subway cars and put on a show. They swing from the poles, flip around, all the while contorting their bodies in a moving vehicle. It’s entertaining and infectious.

I.aM.mE crew member and former So You Think You Can Dance contestant Phillip Chbeeb and Renee Kester choreographed a routine to Elliot Moss’ “Slip.” Melding hip-hop and ballet elements with contemporary dance, the three-minute performance is captivating and possibly even gravity-defying.
