Folklore and Dance tour of Romania, Jun 20 - 30, 2003


The tour will include 11 days of visits to local villages and folk dancers, ethnographic museums, dance performances, castles, folk restaurants, dance instruction and lots of sightseeing, arranged with the assistance of Marin Barbu.

The tour will consist of a clockwise loop from Bucharest, west thru Muntenia and Oltenia, north across the Southern Carpathian Mountains into Transylvania, east into the Middle Carpathian Mountains and returning south to Bucharest. Theodor Vasilescu will personally be giving dance instruction, and during the tour of Bucharest, participants will visit Theodor and Lia’s family home.

The price for all land activities and arrangements within Romania, including all meals, travel, hotel rooms, etc. will depend on the final number of tour participants. If there are 20 people, the price will be US$1150 per person. With 30, it will be US$1050, and with 40, US $950. For air travel, a group rate from Newark and/or JFK is being worked out, leaving via Lufthansa on the evening of Thursday, June 19th, 2003, for Frankfurt, Germany. A connecting flight will then take us to Bucharest on the afternoon of Friday, June 20th. The return is scheduled for July 1 or 2.
