My little one has her first recital tomorrow... Unfortunately they said no cameras during the show... so I took some today and kinda struggled to get something worthy of being proud of... a lot of them were slightly out of focus... the only good ones were when she wasn't moving... I have a K-r ... i was shooting at max 1600.. the lighting was okay during practice...

Owell there will be other recitals... You learn, take notes and move on!

Can you post a pic or two with EXIF? Were they OOF or was it movement? Your K-r should give you good results up to ISO 6400.

I have little experience with such shooting, but wouldn't the K-x's exposure bracketing help? In Av mode it shifts shutter speed for three quick shots; in Tv mode it shifts aperture.

My thoughts for what their worth, experiment a lot, chimp often and adjust settings on the hoof.

Remember also a little motion blur, can give fantastic results with dance.

True. As I was PPing my recent crop of dance pics I noticed I let the ISO stay too high. In several instances I should have lowered it. Thankfully the K-x is capable in the high ISO dept.
