IMPORTANT INFORMATION

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a substantial impact on the Lúčina Slovak Folklore Ensemble.  Our practices and performances have been suspended for the foreseeable future, including cancellation of the 2020 Lúčina Gala in November.  Such measures and changes are unfortunate but have been done to allow social distancing and other safety measures for the well being of our members and our audience.

Please check this site regularly as we hope to resume normal activities as soon as it is viable to do so.

The Lúčina Slovak Folklore Ensemble of Cleveland

When you dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor.  

It's to enjoy each step along 

the way.
