Is the file really in $appdir/css/style.css, or did you mean 
$appdir/public/css/style.css?  (It should be the latter).

Indeed, the only files which should be automatically served are those in 
$appdir/public (for instance, ~/dance/punkishdance/public/).

(And, if you're using the new auto_page feature, Dancer will look for a 
matching template in the views dir if no route matched.

You should find the auto_page feature ideal for that... with that enabled, 
creating $appdir/views/mypage.tt means the a request for /mypage will 
automatically be handled using that view, without you needing to declare any 
route to match it.
