Answer: charades

In Dirty Dancing, Baby tells her parents that she is going to play charades with the staff, when in reality she is sneaking off to see Johnny. Charades is a classic party game where players act out a word or phrase without speaking, and their teammates try to guess what they are acting out. It's interesting to note that while Baby's excuse for leaving is innocent enough, her actions are actually quite rebellious for the time period the movie is set in. Dirty Dancing takes place in the early 1960s, a time when societal norms were much more strict, especially for young women like Baby.
