A disabled South African dancer has won the hearts of people all over with his amazing dance skills.

Musa Motha is a member of the Vuyani Dance Company. He is currently the lead dancer of the hit dance production, 'Cion: Requiem of Ravel's Bolero' - which is currently showing at the Joburg Theatre. 

The 23-year-old, who dances with crutches, leaves audiences in awe with his impressive moves.

Musa lost one of his legs when he was 11-years-old. Doctors amputated the leg after he was diagnosed with osteosarcoma - a type of cancer that affects the bones. 

He has been cancer-free since undergoing the operation.

Musa credits Reach for a Dream for helping him achieve his dream of becoming a professional dancer. 

"Reach for a Dream has done a lot for me. I’m here today, a professional dancer, because of the foundation. They gave me hope and a second chance at life,”  he told IOL earlier this year. 

Musa learned to perfect his dance moves using gravity and his crutches to his advantage. 

His love for music helped set him on the path of becoming a professional dancer. Musa, who once dreamed of becoming a football player, became a DJ and would always dance behind the decks. 

He took his moves to the dance floor and the rest is history. 

He joined the Vuyani Dance Company in 2018 and will soon be heading to New York. 

Musa started a YouTube channel to share videos of himself dancing.
