Stan, you're spot on. I usually am able to sit in the front row (out of necessity) apx. 20 ft. from the dancers. I would prefer to have the ability move futher back or off to the side for different perspective. I am able to shoot at 3200 iso, 1/60s, 2.8 but not happy with the results due to noise. I use a 17-55 2.8 with the D90 so it should be similar to the 24-70 2.8 on dx unless I upgrade to FX. Ideally, I'd like a faster shutter speed and more depth of field, but lighting conditions limit the camera settings. I get lucky occasionally and get some decent shots, but a good portion of my shots have either too much noise, motion blur, etc. I think you are correct that at minimum I will need a 70-200 2.8 lens and an FX camera (d600). I'm not sure if the d7000 would provide a significant improvement over the d90.
