THE FOLK DANCE TRADITION OF THE MACEDONIAN DIASPORA IN SERBIA (FOLLOWING THE RESEARCHES OF ETHNOCHOREOLOGIST MIHAILO DIMOSKI IN PANCHEVO, KACHAREVO, GLOGONJ AND JABUKA)
The Macedonian minority in Serbia has always attracted much attention from Macedonian researchers, especially during the 70’s and 80’s of the 20th century. Interest, except in historical and cultural terms, was also present in terms of the folk dance tradition. This text will deal with the transfer, nurturing and maintenance of the dance tradition, among the Macedonians in Panchevo, Kacharevo, Glogonj and Jabuka, according to examples from the research of the ethnochoreologist Mihailo Dimoski. He dealt with the Macedonian minority in 1973, during which he carried out an extensive ethnochoreological research and collected extensive material. His records, which are in the archive of the Institute of Folklore "Marco Cepenkov" - Skopje, have not been published so far. Thus, the text will be an attempt to present his findings regarding the dance tradition of the Macedonians in the mentioned period.
