Urgent-Why would Shutter speed stopped at 160 with flash HVL-F43am


Right now I am very confused and asking a childish question please someone guide.

Using Sony A55 with HVL-F43am flash unit, in M mode. I have noticed I could not increase shutter more than 160 I wonder why? Flash sync speed?

Actually tomorrow I have to take some dancing photos and as I know in Manual Mode I can increase shutter/ISO/Aperture but today I specially bought a flash and when I turned it on the displayed shutter is 160 not 500. I thought for dancing 500 will be enough.

Would you please guide how could I increase shutter to be able to take dancing photos with flash?

I did not change flash settings to Manual or TTL could this be a reason?

I will be waiting for reply.

Thank you

Additional: how could I take several photos by pressing shutter? I know there is a setting to take 7 or 10 shots will that work in flash mode? (any way sorry for asking a lot)
