Nice job on these, especially for a newbie to dance photography. Couple of observations and tips, in addition to those already mentioned. 1. Try to keep the feet in the frame if possible, unless you're really only interested in the face or upper body in a particular shot. 2. Try to keep the stage straight and level. This isn't an iron-clad rule, but for the most part, straighter is better. 3. If you can, clean up the stage from distracting elements like reflective specks on the floor, and check your borders. There are lots of small bits of dreck that can easily be cloned out, even in Lightroom. The cord in the third shot has to go, as does the little edge of the stage front in the lower left corner of the first shot in the second set. Heads are another matter. If you can crop them out of the frame without interfering with the dancers feet, then do it. Otherwise, they have to stay, and they do lend a sense of place (i.e. a small theater).
