GREENWICH VILLAGE — Two men were arrested for dancing on a crowded subway car at the West 4th Street station last week, NYPD said.

Police spotted 20-year-old Shamik Watson and 18-year-old Andrew Washington dancing and somersaulting on a packed A train at about 12:30 p.m. on Dec. 27, police said.

The pair caused a hazard to themselves and others around them, and made excessive noise by blaring music from a stereo, police said.

Watson and Washington were charged with reckless endangerment as a misdemeanor.

They are both due in court on Feb. 3, 2014.
