Dergin is a German dancer and acrobat. When he was one year old, he suffered from polio and lost control over his left and parts of his right leg. After having seen the movie “Breakin”, he brought his way of moving and dancing on crutches to perfection. Soon he was part of the German Break dance scene. From 2004 to 2011 he was the only handicapped artist to be part of the ensemble of the Cirque du Soleil. He appeared in movies and TV shows and 2012 published his autobiography “My Way to Become a Dancer on Crutches”.
