I am not quite following why many in this thread are recommending 85mm or 135mm lenses for "portrait (full figure)" photos: I interpreted this to mean full-body shots. And I would think that "dancers" implies multiple bodies with arms outstretched? I would think this very challenging to fit in the frame with a 135mm lens, unless the room is very spacious. Maybe I am missing something here.

I agree, and think that a fast zoom may be better.

But I also am curious as to what the OP considers “low resolution” and “distorted” about the images from the Olympus. Something else might be going on.
