Well, my wastebin got it's fair share as I went through the images as I came home after the concert. I sure wished some of the dancers could stand still for at least 1/100 sec once in a while.
I've edited the original posts with exif data for each shot.

There are pros and cons with using primes. Framing people jumping around on a scene becomes difficult. There are a lot of even worse images in the bin.
Thanks for the remark, though, it's always good to see one's pictures through someone else's eyes. That's how we help each other to improve.
