You always Lua, where jit compiled program run half C performance.

Also, I found myself being nearly as productive with ocaml, yes it's not dynamic, but its ml type system is efficient and native compiled code is near C performance.

But python got many, many libraries, strong user base and it's easy to learn for those who wants to expiriment.
