Lúčina was formed as a result of founder and native Clevelander Tom Ivanec’s interest and dedication to
developing a successful Slovak folk dance ensemble in Northeast, Ohio.
Since Lúčina’s inception in 1981, its purpose has been to educate and preserve the SLOVAK cultural heritag in Greater Cleveland, throughout the United States and abroad through historic folk song and dance.
Children age 5 years and older are welcomed to join the children's folk ensemble LÚČINKA.
Teens (15 and above) and adults are eligible for the senior group LÚČINA.

When you dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor.
It's to enjoy each step along
"Lightning Over the Tatras"
Nad Tatrou sa blýska
Hromy divo bijú
Zastavme ich, bratia
Veď sa ony stratia
To Slovensko naše
Posiaľ tvrdo spalo
Ale blesky hromu
Vzbudzujú ho k tomu
Aby sa prebralo
