St. Clement of Ohrid
Ensemble Makedonka

Makedonka, Canada's first organized Macedonian dance group, was formed in Toronto in 1959. One year later, they joined the United Macedonians organization and spent the next decade performing at various fundraisers and cultural functions.

In 1969, the group became affiliated with St. Clement of Ohrid Macedonian Orthodox Church, and was later renamed "Ensemble Makedonka".

Alex Petlichkov, founding member and current choreographer, has devoted the last 46 years to the preservation and growth of not only Macedonian folk dancing, but culture as well. Alex's passion for Macedonian dancing and culture spread, and soon other dance groups were formed.

Throughout the 1970's, 80's and 90's, Ensemble Makedonka has represented the Macedonian community at various cultural festivals, both locally and abroad, winning countless awards and respect within the ethnic community of Toronto, including the CHIN International Folklore Competition where they have placed first several times.
