This was taken behind the stage.
The photo needs to show people's faces.

Looks to my old-fart eyes she's out of focus. The guy in the purple shirt on the left seems in focus.
Hm, when I look at it I thought it was both in focus but shes just moving. Maybe he is in focus and I am crazy.
Its from behind the stage so they really aren't focused on looking back here.
It could be motion blur, too. If so, a slightly faster shutter speed would have helped.
and it's tilted
looks like she's twirling as her arms have ghosted on either side, thus looks OOF. Her skirt definitely is twirling.
prob not best to be looking up her dress either in the photo. Need faces.
Well, there's no point of interest, and the biggest thing in the photo is the back of one of the dancers. The camera seems not to be level, either.
You really need to give an idea of equipment, settings and such for any possibility of meaningful suggestions.
This kind of shot is tricky...it's very much about gesture and body positioning. I think cropping off the two lights at the top and the back of the guy on the left helps...but this shot is really not great source material even for a heavy crop. Does this seem any better? The problem is the exact timing and body placement of the actors...not everything was optimal when the shutter captured the scene.
Here's the crop. The two boys in white shirts are the most annoying out of place details...
I agree with some of the other comments, - better to show some faces, faster shutter speed, no-tilt, focus, cropping, etc.
