Dergin Tokmak was born December 26, 1973 in Augsburg, Germany. He contracted polio when he was 1 year old. Poliomyelitis is a virus that attacks the nerves that control your muscles. In Dergin’s case, he lost the control of his left leg and some of the control of his right. However, undeterred, Dergin has made it his life’s work to perfect his own dancing style that utilizes his crutches — Amazing….

    I had ACL surgery and had a full leg brace & crutches for a couple months. Didn't let it stop me from going to clubs/raves. In all honesty it got me WAY more attention from the ladies than I've ever had in my life. That and people would constantly try to take away my crutches until I showed them the brace claiming "they could be used as weapons."
