Hello, let me introduce myself. I am Mar, I am 53 years old, I live in Barcelona in a large and well located apartment. I work as a Creative Director for a advertising agency. My children have become independent and I have space to host a person comfortably.
I work in advertising and in my free time I am learning and dedicating a lot of time to dance: kizomba and salsa specifically.

PLEASE, READ CAREFULLY THE PROFILE BEFORE APPLYING TO BE MY GUEST.
I would like to increase my kizomba level, so I am interested in hosting a man with an advanced level of kizomba and didactic skills.
I want to point out that I take dance very seriously, because it is changing my life. The interested person must demonstrate to be able to teach kizomba and have experience.
Other skills that will be well valued: to speak Portuguese or English, to I can practice. Kitchen and cleaning. Salsa dance.
As usual, the offer of accommodation includes bed and board in exchange for 5 hours a day of work, 5 days a week and two days off a week. We can talk about the work schedule and I am quite flexible, although for the dance classes we will have to find a schedule that works well for me and can be combined with my work.
I'm waiting for your messages! Thank you!

You will sleep in a private room. We live in a big flat located downtown Barcelona. It is ten minutes away from Catalunya Square (considered the very center of the city). The flat is beautiful and fashions the typical modernist Catalan style of the 1880's.
Then there is the kitchen, just a normal kitchen with everything you need. The apartment has two bathrooms, a very big one fully equipped and a small toilet.
This beautiful city is full of what European cities are known for (outdoor markets, restaurants, shops, museums and churches) and is fantastic for walking with an extensive and reliable Subway system for more far-flung destinations. The core centre of town, focused around the Ciutat Vella ("Old City") provides days of enjoyment for those looking to experience the life of Barcelona while the beaches the city was built upon provide sun and relaxation during the long periods of agreeably warm weather.
