ὀρχέομαι, ὀρχοῦμαι: 1 aorist ὠρχησαμην; (from χορός, by transposition ὄρχος; cf. ά῾ρπω, ἁρπάζω, and Latinrapio, μορφή and Latinforma; (but these supposed transpositions are extremely doubtful, cf. Curtius, § 189; Fick 4:207, 167. Some connect ὀρχέομαι with the root, argh, 'to put in rapid motion'; cf. Vanicek, p. 59)); to dance: Matthew 11:17; Matthew 14:6; Mark 6:22; Luke 7:32.
