Topaz DeNoise AI used on a group shot (Raw included). What do you think? What can I improve?

So far I think I like it better than Nik's Dfine. Curious what others think? I am on the trial and may end up purchasing. I am trying to find the best workflow for group shots. Critique always welcome.    FYI, the posing was intentional by the Directors of the dance team.  They went through a variety of serious, smiles, etc.
