    Dance Hall Days is the winner of the Best Texas Film at the Hill Country Film Festival.
    Dance halls were once as common as cattle in Texas. The ones that remain exist in a time where their past is legend and their future uncertain. Dance Hall Days is a look into the institutions and people who look to keep them alive. Most of these halls, including the Round Top Schutzen Verein where this show will be held, have been open for over a century.
