Auto focus or manual for dance music video?

Hi, I am a beginner photographer/videographer who would like to shoot a dance music video. I have been watching many tutorials on how to shoot a music video and many say that manual focus is best. I do understand that manual is better as there are times autofocus loses its subject and you get that amateur look because the autofocus is trying to find something else to track. Now my question is since I'd like to shoot a dance music video where there will be a lot of movement, should I record using manual focus or not? What I mean by a lot of movement is spinning, lots of arm movement, etc.

Here is a link to a dance music video I will use for reference: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4plS-8WeYdk

Any advice will be greatly appreciated

Also, I own a Canon 250D for people that'd like to know.
