The only professional folklore ensemble in Macedonia, the Tanec Ensemble are dedicated to the preservation of traditional Macedonian music, dance, and costuming. Founded by the government of the People's Republic of Macedonia in 1949, the group has shared their musical heritage with audiences around the world for more than half a century, performing an estimated 3,500 concerts in 31 countries.

The Tanec Ensemble attracted international attention almost from their inception. In 1950, the group took first place in a competition at the International Festival in Llangollen, England. The ensemble reached their peak during the late '50s, when influential clarinet and pipes player Tale Ognenovski was a member. The group remained active with a membership of around 42 regular members; their repertoire includes more than 50 choreographed pieces.
