odo(ru)

meaning: dance, leap, double

踊り子== odoriko == (noun) dancer
盆踊り == bonodori == (noun)  Bon Festival dance, Lantern Festival dance




Left radical is 'leg/foot' (足). Right radical is a character found only in Chinese meaning 'raised/break clear', which here acts phonetically to express 'leap high'. 'Dance' is an associated meaning. Henshall suggests taking the right radical as a simplification of 'pass' (通),and as a mnemonic: 'Dance, using feet in passing.'
