THE BRONX - One street performer may be dazzling subway riders with his dance moves, but the MTA says what he is doing is illegal.

Ikeem Jones says he earns $500 a week by hanging from the overhead poles on subway cars, as well as other routinely performed stunts.

Jones says that during the four months he has been performing, he has not been fined once.

The performer says he is saving money to pay for schooling to become a choreographer.

The NYPD did not release figures on how often they issue summonses for dancing.
