(Strong's #3738 — Verb — orcheo — or-kheh'-om-ahee )

(cp. Eng., "orchestra") probably originally signified "to lift up," as of the feet; hence, "to leap with regularity of motion." It is always used in the Middle Voice, Matthew 11:17; 14:6; Mark 6:22; Luke 7:32 . The performance by the daughter of Herodias is the only clear instance of artistic dancing, a form introduced from Greek customs.
