My daughter will be having her dance recital Saturday. It's in the high school gym. I tried taking some pictures from the balcony today, and they are super-noisy. During the recital we will be seated in the bleachers that are on the gym floor, not the balcony. I used my 18-105 lens today, and that is most likely the lens I'll be using Saturday.
I will be approximately 50 feet from my daughter during the recital.

Any tips for the best quality, low-noise pics are greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I was using P-mode today, and most of the shots were 1/60, f/5.6, iso400 @105mm.
I know I need to stop relying on Program Auto mode so much and learn to use all my settings Manually. I should set that as a goal for this summer. But any help and tips for Saturday so I can get the best pics possible would be great. I appreciate any comments.

If I've left out any info, just ask, and I'll post. TIA!!
