Just a few.

I only found out about this festival of dance yesterday, but apparently it's held every year at the Waterfront Museum in Swansea.

K-7 at ISO 500. Pentax 77mm.

No. 3 does it for me - the interested parties all looking at the subject willing him to do it right, and it captures eaxctly the right moment.

Agree - #3 is great.

But I also really like the energy in #2... apart from the lady on the far left, who does not seem to have the funk at this particular moment. Almost hate to suggest it, but might be better cropped into the folk on the right.

Nice set

Some of my vaguely better stuff

Poor girl

Yes it's a good shot, as is no. 3.

I love no. 4 for the aching indifference of the audience, particularly the boy in the white T-shirt and woman stifling a yawn. A little crop to the left and top might highlight this - crop to the left of the girl in the spotted top who is looking in the wrong direction, and crop the top to maintain the proportions, below the black bar thingy.

"Aching indifference" I like that, and so true.

That little girl's comic goofiness is interesting for me. It may not show her skill but it says something about her effort.

2 for me too, like the dancers' poses. I also would have cropped the leftmost girl, but you make a good point about her goofiness. It's quite endearing really
