Need help focusing properly during video — Nikon Z 6ii

I recently began taking videos with the Nikon Z 6ii. It was at a dance recital involving my 6 year old granddaughter.

I was using the focus mode Auto-Area AF (People). When my granddaughter was the only person in the scene, it focused on her eyes properly, but when another dancer entered the scene, and was closer to the camera than my granddaughter, the camera then focused on the nearer dancer. What should I do to prevent this, and keep the focus on my granddaughter?
