Travel Tours for Ballet or Dance PerformancesCombined travel tours for attending ballet/dance performances

Being in the Washington, DC area I have traveled to New York and Boston to catch local or visiting ballet or dance companies. But visiting companies rarely do more than the tried and true standards so traveling to their home bases is a must.
So instead, I thought it would be fun to combine a vacation tour of cities coordinated with ballet and or dance performances.
I am thinking a week or ten day tour stopping in two or three of the following European cities: Paris, Lyon, the Hague, Berlin, St. Petersburg, and Monte Carlo coordinated with one or two ballet or dance events in each city.
Do such tours exist; if so I have had little success finding them on the internet?

Yes, that (Tours en L'air) is the organization I remember as well. I think there is also one in Australia, but unfortunately, I don't remember the name of that one, and will have to check my rather disorganized archives (unless an online--Google?-- search might do?)
My colleague Elizabeth Zimmer has done some work with Renaissance Tours in Sydney, Australia, but these are Australians, coming to the US.

Thank you to the originator of this thread - you helped me find something I'd been looking for!

Over the years, I've met a number of people who have been travelling independently, having compared schedules and worked out their own itineraries. We used to meet up often in the Autumn with an American gentleman (Jim from the Bronx) who spent a month in the UK following all the British companies he could find.
The "Word Lady" was in the UK last Autumn. I met her at Birmingham where she interviewed Robert Parker for her group and Friends of BRB.
