This Saturday MKUD Vardar Bankstown celebrated its 35th Anniversary at the Conca D’Oro Reception. It was a great milestone celebrated through dance , music and culture in front of distinguished guests, sponsors supporters and its dancers.
MKUD VARDAR dance group was established in 1984 by Tode Popovski, Spase Karabelevski, Trajan Ristevski and assisted by a few others. It was evident that the Macedonian parents in the Bankstown region, not only wanted a place to gather but wanted to ensure that their children had the opportunity to continue the culture and traditions.
The group began with 20 to 30 students and eventually grew to an amazing 150!The Choreographers were Ilo Trajkovski followed by Johnny Mitrevski who worked tirelessly together with the students to create authentic routines.
In 1990 MKUD Vardar travelled to Melbourne and then the Magnificent Motherland Macedonia. The students and parents where honored to be a part of the journey and created many memories for the community both here and abroad.
