To make time fly during a five-hour layover at Denver International Airport, ballet dancers on a Nutcracker tour turned the moving walkway into their own stage.

Members of State Street Ballet, based in Santa Barbara, Calif., entertained airline passengers by demonstrating various ballet positions — port de bras, cambre and arabesque lifts. One man seems to just casually hold a handstand as passengers race by him.

The video has been shared more than 40,000 times since one of the dancers, Nick Topete, uploaded the clip to Facebook Monday.
