dance


Explanation:
VI (= danser) = to dance. from the old French "guenchir" to mean "obliquer"; from "guinche" (1821) meaning "bal public".

Without any further info, impossible to say whether anything other than an ordinary familiar verb for "dance". If your context is modern and liveley, you may be able to use something like "bop"?!
