Retro Americana, Pittville Park two weeks ago. The well-dressed couple were the stars but I wanted to contrast them with the casually-dressed dancers. I also wanted to include the singer (called John Clare!). Given that the dancers were moving around it took time to capture them all lined up.

Yes, I was there on the Sunday and was drawn to photograph a particular couple due to their dress. We can see the band and singer so we know there is music and the swirling dress shows the movement so clearly action. They are all positioned well as you intended so not sure I can think of a criticism. Of course a real judge would have to criticise in a competition unless it was the winner.
I agree with Dave that the picture tells a story and that you did well to get everything lined up as you wanted it. I did find however that my eye was immediately drawn to the steps at the rhs and the bright area above them. Not sure what you can do about them as cropping would take you too close to the singer.
