The other day, I saw a documentary about children acrobats in Shanghai. It was very unbearable to watch for me because they were in pain when they stretch their bodies out. I opted out going to the circus with animals in them but now, I may just opt out all circuses. Do all acrobats go through this to become very talented now?

I think that physical pain is a price paid for most sports and dance. When all goes well the body goes along but with each hit, fall, or even imperfect move pain is the price. Many of these people will suffer their whole lives for the price sports or dance takes.
