The performer danced lively, delighting the children

In the above sentence, I thought "lively" is enhancing the verb "danced", thus making it an adverb. It can be adjective as well. How do I decide. Thanks in advance.

This is on of the tricky adjectives.
(timely, lovely, lively, friendly) are among the adjectives that sometimes are mistaken as adverbs.
If we want to use these adjectives to modify a verb , we can't say "livelyly), so we say "in a lively manner" to modify the verb.

So in your example, lively is certainly modifying "performer".
