Since its end-of-month and many people are anxiously waiting for their salaries, why not try a fun event that is completely free of charge, and gives you the opportunity to show off your dance moves? This one is a little bit weird, but according to the organizers it is quite successful. And we believe them as we have been on several music events in MNAC and they were quite good.
In this case you are invited to dance on certain Saturdays of every month in the Sala Oval of MNAC, where different groups will have life performances.
