Just to give you 2 examples of my off-camera use I am attaching 2 photos from Cambodia, one where I used the flash (with orange gel) bounced to support the available light,

You can put an orange gel in front of a pop-up flash. I used electrical tape on my D30. It's a cheesy solution but can be done. I regularly used it to match the color of incandescent light. They also have mirrors to bounce pop-up light off the ceiling.

and another one where I used it directly on the dancer to overpower the available light.

Pop-up flashes are powerful enough to do this these days.

If you're willing to do some messing around, you can get a pop-up to do a lot.
