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….

    First and foremost let me say this, good for this guy, he's got more positive attitude in his little finger then I do total. I'm on crutches, you best believe I'm not doing much of anything. Good for you sir…

    NOW, that being said, I hate it when I see crippled people who can do things better than me. Makes my case of self loathing even more intense.

    a man who has lost control of his left leg and most of his right, is unable to do stuff like that… you can clearly see him standing on his left leg multiple times.. i call bullshit on this one

    I cannot believe the stupid comments like herp derp and what happens if the crutches break ,,well if they break you move outts your moms basement dickheads ,,praise him for the accomplishments he has done with and during his affliction consider yourself lucky I know no one who can dance like him with two good legs I personally would shake his hand and tell him he is unique and and incredible dancer I know I can't dance and tear me apart for trying but he has developed a very impressive talent
