“Dash” can be a noun or a verb. Its most common meaning is a short, fast run. It’s more exciting than “sprint”, and more likely to be used to describe an action scene.

It can also be to violently knock something out of something else: “He tried to apologize with flowers but she dashed the bouquet from his hand.” Or it can be similar to a sprinkle, but larger: “Add a dash of salt.”
