Opanak Podrska za Krajiske Nosnje / Support for Krajina Costumes

We are thrilled to debut our new dance at Gracanica Village Carrousel, Saturday, June 24th, “Krajiske obicaje”.

Originally published in April.

In order to represent the region properly during performances, we need nosnje that are specific to create the sound/rhythm for this unique choreography. We are appealing to local Serbian organizations as well as families in our Serbian community to help sponsor the purchase of these nosnje.

We need approximately 5500 euros total for 16 nosnje (8 sets male & female) and the details are itemized in the letter attached. We ask for you to share this letter at your next executive and members meetings as well as with any families in the community, especially those originally from the area, who would be willing to help with sponsorship.
Once purchased, the nosnje will remain with Opanak for many years to come (we have nosnje from over 30 years ago still in great condition).
We are grateful for all the donations and support!


Poštovani članovi naše SRPSKE zajednice,

Obraćamo Vam se u ime svih članova folklorne grupe “Opanak”.

Kao što znate “Opanak” je folklorna grupa srpske zajednice u Windsor-u, koja kao takva postoji od 1993 i redovno učestvuje u svim njenim dešavanjima.

Sa radošću želimo da vas obavestimo da po prvi put naša grupa u svom repertoaru priprema “Krajiške
običaje” poznatog koreografa iz Srbije, Dejana Milosavljevića. Krajiške igre su jedinstvene po tome što
se igraju bez muzike, samo uz ritam.

Windsor je postao novi dom mnogim Krajišnicima u poslednjih 100 godina, i naša je želja da vas
donekle vratimo, makar kroz igre u Vaš zavičaj! Da bismo to u potpunosti uspeli potrebna nam je
podrška Vas, naše zajednice u vidu pomoći pri kupovini krajiških nošnji.

Svi Vi koji na bilo koji način želite da učestvujete u kupovini kompletne nošnje ili dela nošnje, ljubazno
Vas molimo da se obratite sledećim osobama.

  • Jovanka Galić na 519-567-3637
  • Dragan Joksić na 519-919-4444
  • Tatjana Malović (Tanja) na 519-919-6093

Svi donatori će dobiti zahvalnicu i biti blagovremeno obaveštani o prvom nastupu u novim nošnjama.

U ime članova grupe “Opanak”, od srca HVALA svim donatorima!

Dearest members of our SERBIAN community,

We are writing to you in the name of all members of the Folklore Ensemble “Opanak”.

As you know, “Opanak” is a community group in Windsor, formed in 1993, which regularly participates
in local and out of town events and performances.

We are thrilled to announce that for the first time, our group is working on debuting a new dance, “Krajiške običaje”, from well known Serbian choreographer, Dejan Milosavljević “Zvečanac”. Krajiške dances are unique, there is no music, instead the dancers create the rhythm with the coins and metal on their costumes.

Windsor became the new home for many families from the Krajina region in the last 100 years, and our wish is to bring back your memories through dance and song from the homeland! In order to succeed, we need yours and the community’s support to purchase the proper costumes for this dance.

Any donors who would like to help us with the purchase of a complete costume or part of a costume, we ask you to please contact one of the following individuals:

  • Jovanka Galić na 519-567-3637
  • Dragan Joksić na 519-919-4444
  • Tatjana Malović (Tanja) na 519-919-6093

All donors will receive a thank you note and be notified when our first performance of the new dance is to take place with the new costumes.

On behalf of the members of the “Opanak” group, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart to all donors!
