Re: XZ1 for dance festival or...?

For getting good dance shots - you need to know the dances and the characteristic movements in them. Watch the dancers for some time before you even touch the camera. If you have no involvement with any form of dance, you are shooting blind, regardless of which camera you use.

As to the camera - can you operate it in your sleep? For dancing, it needs to be the extension of your hand, and definitely not confuse you with dozens of possible settings.

This said, I would use the XZ-1. It is the one least likely to trip you up with technical quandaries.
