Hi Lee,

Great advise above!
You are at the mercy of the ambient lighting conditions. There are three things that you can do to achieve the faster shutter speed that you need to freeze the motion of your daughter.
1. Increase the ISO as high as required with the Aperture wide open (smallest f/#). If you can get a shutter speed of at least 1/250th sec. you should be able to capture a usable image.

If the ambient lighting is too low to get the shutter speed fast enough, you are left with two options.

2. Get a faster lens; Prime or contsant aperture f/2.8 zoom.

3. Use a Speedlight to increase the light level.
If you use a Speedlight you will be limited to 1/200th sec. which is the fastest sync speed of the D3000. The short flash duration will help to freeze the movement of your subject. Your shooting distance will be dependent on the range (power) of your Speedlight.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty
