My husband and I took a tour in June ’09 that focused on dance, with choreographer Theodor Vasilescu (in the US and Canada, contact Ping Chun, 49 Junard Dr., Morristown, NJ 07960; phone 973/539-7020 or e-mail ping.chun@att.net). Theodor leads a tour each summer to different regions of Romania; some folks on our tour had traveled with him six times!

The land price for our 12-night tour was $2,000 per person and included all museum admissions, a driver, guide, classes in traditional dances like the hora and other circle dances, professional performances, parties and instructional DVDs.

In addition to visiting monasteries, synagogues and other sites, we had the opportunity to meet, dine and dance with local Romanians in their villages.
