Thank you.

On stage can't use flash, and usually with dancers flash is not possible, unless it is "staged shots". What I mean is live performance where they have to be naturally lit. Is it ok to use electronic shutter or only with A9 Sony? Others too slow?

I don't know.  My mechanical shutter transits the full frame in 1/400th of a second.  I don't know what the fastest progressive shutters in consumer cameras do.

Same thing with athletes, I am not going to be able to use flash in a stadium or on a field track where I am shooting with a 200/300mm lens from the sidelines.

No experience here with MILC so maybe I am not explaining properly.

No, you explained it right.  I gave you the reasons why each can be objectionable.

I've found very few (but not zero) instances where 1/400th was not fast enough to avoid noticeable skew, but those were in things way faster than dancers and runners.  I'm guessing e-shutters are more typically in the 1/60th to 1/120th range, but I don't really know.
