They start learning acrobatics at the age of five and will have chalked up to 8000 hours practice by the age of 10. Showing absolute commitment to their craft, child acrobats of Zirka Circus are performing in Wellington City to celebrate Chinese New Year. Lynda Chanwai-Earle joins some of the Zirka Circus team during the huge street parade through the capital to learn just how dedicated these Chinese children are.
