I shot my niece's dance recital last year with a 5d and 70-200 2.8 II. ISO 1600 put the ss at 1/500. So, thinking logically, you could use your 70-300 at 5.6, add 1/3 stop of exposure (it is a 7d after all so don't underexpose) and bump the ISO on the 7d to 3200 and maintain a similar SS, assuming your lighting is similar. Stages are way brighter than we tend to think. The extra reach will be beneficial too if you aren't reall close.

Stage side switches to the 17-55 2.8.

Canon's AF 85mm 1.8 is a total geme.

Theoritically for a person on limited budget, you may think one can do even better with a 55mm or 50mm f 1.2 manual lens. But in my experience the manual focus lenses are very difficult to handle for that critical focusing and at least in my experience most image are miss rather than hit. Rokinon's 85 f1.4 also falls in the same line.

If budget not a limit, nothing to beat 85mm F1.2L MkII.

I would choose the 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II mainly due to its zooming flexibility. If that is too large, weighs too much, or costs too much, then a fast prime like the 135mm f/2L would be good.
