Every year, the folk group Es Rebost organises together with the Maˇ Town Council the programme of "Ballades a sa Plaša". The dances, free entrance, are held at the Claustre del Carme in Maˇ, every Thursday at 8.30 p.m., from June to September.

The programme "Ballades a sa Plaša", which has been organised since 1996, is a perfect opportunity to get to know the traditional Menorcan music, dances and dresses. "Jotes", "fandangos", "boleros" and "bullangueres" form the repertory of the group. As well as this dancing songs the musicians play other popular songs from the island, while they give a rest to the dancers.

The dances and songs are presented in a happy, familiar and participative atmosphere. Within the show, the public is also invited to perform together with the dancers one of the most simple and easy to learn dances.

The dresses of Es Rebost excel for their originality and variety, as the include some items that the rest of folk groups on the island do not use, such as the "barretina" o the "c˛fia" (caps).
