Yeah, the tripod isn't going to help you much. You're trying to stop their movement, not your own. You can do some kinda cool stuff with a long exposure (without flash to freeze action) but you do NOT want to shoot a whole show like this. I have never used a tripod for this even, usually just resting the camera on the stage or monitors works fine.

10mm, F8, 1", ISO1250

I use ETTL 99% of the time as I don't really understand enough about manual flash power to make it work. I'll go to half or 1/1 when trying to bounce but the rest of the time it's ETTL with FEC.

The 1" / flash I mentioned is just to get the light streaks. To stop action with flash use a faster shutter, over 1/100, and a somewhat high iso so you don't end up with a black background.

10mm, F4, 1/100, ISO800
