    Interested in home rental
    Alistair answered:
    Take a look at a site such as HomeAway.com, which includes rental listings by local property owners in cities around the world, including Paris. Once you find a place you like, you coordinate with the owner directly and put down a deposit, typically between 10 to 50 percent. HomeAway is currently listing a really nice looking two-bedroom apartment near Sacre Couer and Montmatre (http://www.homeaway.com/vacation-rental/p224052) for about $1,500 per week in the summer high season (so about $200/night). Not a bad rate for somewhere with all the comforts of home. Other similar sites you might try include Airbnb.com (a little more "homestay"-ey) or iStopOver.com.

    You don't mention what style of dancing you enjoy. Paris has got it all, from ballroom dancing to tango to hardcore Euro dance beats! I did a quick search for "places to dance in paris" on Google for you, which pulls up loads of info. For example, The New York Times' travel blog put up a story about where to learn tango in Paris, which includes recommendations for a few good milangos and instructors for you to research. http://nyti.ms/gEdfss

    paris in july
    Alistair answered:
    Typically, many Parisians leave the city in July and August for their summer vacations, but there is still plenty going on. Off top of my head, here are a few ideas: Bastille Day is on July 14 and features parades, a military display, and fireworks; Paris' Jazz Festival runs till July 29 (various events listed here: http://parisjazzfestival.paris.fr/en/); the final processional stage of the Tour de France rolls into Paris and up the Champs-Elysees on July 22; head down to the Seine to enjoy the scene of the annual Paris "plage", when sand and other seaside activities arrive for four weeks each summer, starting around July 20. Bon voyage!
