We had a good experience with researching at hostelworld.com.
For hosting requests please note, that we cannot promise to organize your hosting. We will do our best, but it has worked out great so far to start looking at the following platforms yourself:
Though from our own experience it is not easy finding a host, if you have no private connection to the dance community. Once you got to know the dancers in person it is much easier. Still you should try, or search for couch surfing and airbnb.
