Folk dance ensemble “Derventa” was founded in 1994 and its main goal is protection and preservation tradition of their own nation. The ensemble has more than 120 active members who are divided into three folk ensembles, women’s chorus and the orchestra. They perform 15 different choreographies based on traditional folk dances from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia and Macedonia and we possess our own collection of folk costumes.

Since its foundation, the ensemble has performed its repertoire on numerous festivals in our country, ex-Yugoslavian countries (Serbia, Slovenia, Croatia, Montenegro) and abroad (Greece, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Italy and Turkey).

We received numerous awards and the most significant is the third place on festival “Zlatni opanak” in Valjevo in 2008 within category for the most original choreography and folk costumes. The ensemble received “Velikogospojinska povelja” and golden emblem of the Municipality of Derventa which is the most significant award given by the Municipality of Derventa.

We take part in numerous events every year, we organize our traditional annual concert which takes place each May and we help to organize folk dance festival each September.
