I agree with Robert in regard to the use of light stands. Overhead lights, unless mounted to a pipe or grid, are potentially dangerous and difficult to adjust without a ladder or step stool.
C-stands or similar light stands will give you a great deal more flexibility; provided you weight the bottom of the stands and secure the power cables for the lights there shouldn’t be any problem with safety.
