That's not a bad photo, but it looks like you could only get 1/75 shutter speed which is just enough for girls who are standing but not dancing. That might be what the OP needs to do. Just use the 40-150 at ISO 1600, which will probably give 1/100 and time shots around slower action. You could also use video as that only runs at a max of 1/60 or 1/30 shutter anyway.

Here's one I took last year (it is from my 30D, not the 60D as I said earlier)

I needed f2.8, 1/400 and it was ISO 3200 but I had to brighten it a 1/3 stop, so it is 4000 equivalent. That's ISO 12800 + a little brightening at f5.6. This is only 85mm, which is like 70mm on m4/3. I just got up before her number and moved near the front off to the side so I wasn't in anyone's way. If that's an option, the closer the better.
