Depends on the cause: Foot pain may be due to: trauma (fracture, sprains, arthritis), infection, metabolic conditions (gout), structural (bunion, hammertoes), or biomechanical abnormality, blood clot, or nerve damage (neuropathy). A thorough history and physical exam by a professional and possibly some laboratory and radiology exams may help to determine the right cause and appropriate treatment.

Acro dance: Can be pretty hard on the feet. If you're having pain, it might not be from the acro-dancing, but the acro-dancing brought it out. (if you were a couch potato, your feet would feel fine.) i recommend you see a podiatrist and get evaluated and find out why you're having pain, and there may be a pad or device or strapping that you can use when acro-dancing.
