I found taking photos of some Contemporary Dancers to be a bit of a challenge. There was movement to contend with, contrasts between the black and white costumes while trying not to get a harsh shadow. This would be easy for a more experienced photographer but I tried. What do you think?

Wedding photographers face the challenge with black & white.
I think the focus has to be one or the other. with these dresses
there isn't much detail other than the light to pick up and I think you've managed that well.
As for the shadows, you probably need another light to eliminate the shadows.
I've been doing portraiture recently with our club pro and admit that lighting is not easy.
On portrait which I have on website today, we had a a large soft box on left and coming in from side behind the screen,
and a white sheet clamped to a rail to reflect the light from the softbox on other side.
The critique team could probably explain this much better if you approach one of them.
