Hmm.. I can't figure out how to edit posts...

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get a good position for photos (I was eventually asked to stop taking photos because they hired a company to take them).  I was limited by lighting and my 23mm.  So the images are a little noisy due to ISO and crop.

I think you need to develop more story-telling in your composition.

Aaron thanks for your thoughts.  I was limited by equipment and where I was taking photos from.
 
Though I would appreciate any recommendations or advice you have.

These shots actually have potential. Try playing with different angles emphasizing their faces.

Some good work, Khelm .

I believe shots #1 and to lesser amount #3 ,  do kind of tell a story ,  but the position of #2  kind of loses me .

Like Suni suggests some have potential  for further exploration of this subject and technique.  Maybe  you could get a group of dancing friends together (still bearing in mind COVID restrictions)  where  you are the 'official' photographer,  to practice themes and angles.

Out of curiosity , roughly what shutter speeds were you using ?  Can you examine the exif data in the image files ?
