Reception in night club. Black walls, black ceiling, colored lights

Now that I'm finally comfortable with bounced ttl flash, I get a reception at The Fillmore. Black walls and ceiling. So I probably won't be able to bounce. The place will be packed (300+ guests). My questions are:
1. How should I go about lighting the dance floor shots? Set up a light stand? Add a modifier? Use off and on camera flash at the same time?
2. How should I light candids and group pictures throughout the evening? Should I just put a stofen diffuser on the flash and tilt forward a little?

I have a D700 and sb900. Plan on renting whatever else I need. Will also have an assistant.

Thanks for your help!!
