Dance competition (multiple photos)

These shots are from a dance competition this weekend. I used the Sigma 70-200 2.8 HSM II and K-5. Lighting conditions were dismal so ISO ranged between 3200 and 10,000 for the day to get a passable shutter speed. A little bit of noise reduction was applied in LR3.

Good stuff, especially given the lighting conditions you faced.
My favorite is the first.
Thanks for sharing.

Like you said Larry, lighting was a bit rough for you, but I think the shots turned out very well considering.
