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:

Hector is a swing dancer (Lindy Hop and Jazz solo). Beginning with the ballroom dances, he felt more interested on the latin rhythms, Afrocuban dances and the Argentinian Tango. It was not until 2005 that he started dancing Lindy Hop, but he was captured by the essence of the dance and he began teaching it in 2009. Nowadays, Hector dances and teaches Cuban Salsa, Argentinian Tango and Lindy hop in different important schools of Barcelona. His teaching is known to be focused on the roots of each dance and he likes to develop one’s own body movements within the couple dance in order to improve both leads and follows connection. Also, he is been using these concepts for his own improving as a dancer by taking part of Working Progress (a Barcelona contemporary dance company) as well as being member of an Afrocuban dance company.
