Hey dancing people,

I know this is actually a Salsa group, but since usually people who dance Salsa are also interested in other dances I`d like to ask, if anybody knows a place where to dance Forró here in BCN? Just found out about this place:

- Lugar: Sala Monasterio (Passeig Isabel II, 4)

- Cuándo: todos los miércoles y primer sábado de cada mes

- Hora: a partir de las 22.30h

- Precio: 6€

Anybody has been there already and knows where it is?

Greets, Jana

Yes, people were dancing at that time.

Actually I have been to both places- and both times there was a lot of dancing going on. I liked both venues and I had a good time at both bars.
I went to harlem on friday and to Monasterio on wednesday. I've got to say the venue at monasterio is very cool- it's in a basement with old stonewalls- very nice. Both times I went- there was a live band and a lot of dancing.
