You have little choice but to use direct flash under these conditions. Use the usual settings for low light but keep the shutter speed high enough to avoid motion blur. Gel the flash with a 1/2 CTO to match ambient light. Keep your distance from your subject so that light fall off is more even around the subject. Remember that at high ISO settings the flash minimum distance is is pretty far and if you are too close you will blow out the subject.

You will be surprised how well this can actually work.
