Handicapped Performer Dancing on Crutches Blows Us Away

As a way to prove that he’s not limited by his disability, handicapped performer Dergin Tokmak performs an amazing dance called “Solo on Crutches.”

When he was only one-year-old, Tokmak contracted polio and was left without the full use of his legs. And yet, he went on to become an accomplished break dancer and eventually joined Cirque du Soleil.

In the video, Tokmak uses his crutches as much more than a way to support his weight. They actually become an extension of his body in unbelievable ways.

“I want to pass on to the next generation…so people can see that no handicap is too big or too limiting to dance,”¬†Tokmak said.¬†”My message as an artist is to show the world that there is a creative soul in everyone with or without a handicap.”
