Not sure what dancing off or off is supposed to mean, find some way of dancing off, find some way off, find some way of escaping?

ἀπόκινον εὑρέ -> find some way of dancing off or off or escaping, Ar.Eq.20

"Dancing off" = "dancing away."  The second "or off" seems to be a misprint (dittography).  So we have (in LSJ), s.v. ἀπόκινος, ὁ, (κινέω):
A. comic dance, of an indecent nature, Cratin. 120, Ar. Fr. 275, Poll. 4.101, Ath. 14.629c: metaph., ἀπόκινον εὑρέ find some way of dancing off or escaping
, Aristophanes' Knights 20.
