So you know you can’t dance? No worries—Century Ballroom won’t drag you into a Dancing with the Stars routine at its new View and Chew nights. All you have to do is pull up a chair, tuck into your meal, and let the leading men on the silver screen take the lead. On weekends from Friday through October 31, Century Ballroom will host free movie screenings in West Hall—all films dance-related, of course—with food and drink service available through the Tin Table.
“It supports what we do: to provide another outlet for enjoying dance, especially if you aren’t a dancer,” says Hallie Kuperman, owner of Century Ballroom and the Tin Table.
