I think these are competently shot photos of a novel and interesting subject, but I am not sure I think they break any spectacular new ground in photographic artifice or creativity. In that sense, I would put them in a photojournalism category of work, and that isn't meant to be a negative critique. The conditions are generally with available light, and the circumstances weren't modulated to maximize the dancers or environment. For these reasons, I think they are more journalistic. I do enjoy seeing beautiful women where there strength and fitness are the subject instead of their pure sexuality. These gals are strong and athletic and they have been photographed respectfully and skillfully.
The black and white toning tends to lend them a bit more cohesive feel as a set. You aren't dazzled by the sky, or water or people in the backgrounds as much by the muscles and skin tones that come through in black and white.
...ooh, I just noticed one thing that bugs me a bit. They are all B&W, but with a different color tone, or maybe two different color tone. #s 1,3,7 have a warmer tone while the others are cooler or more neutral. To show them as a set, the tone should probably match.
