The Croatian Cultural Association, H.K.U.D. "Lado" Geelong was founded in Geelong in 1972 by a young group of Croatian immigrants; some of whom were members of the association "Zrinski".
With the support of other existing organisations including "Otpor" and the Croatian Youth group "Uzdanica", Lado quickly established itself as a strongly bonded community association.
Our name was adopted from Lado, the National Folk Dance Ensemble of Croatia; intending to reflect the association's central focus on bringing the local Croatian Community together, and bringing the gap between the diaspora and their beloved homeland.
Over the past two decades, LADO has continued to develop at a rapid pace and today boasts more than 80 active dancers, vocalists and musicians across three age groups (senior, intermediate and junior) who together have the privilege of showcasing our treasured dance choreographies and songs, our traditional costumes, and our instruments ranging from the tamburica, samica and sargija to the humble reed-flute.
Over its 45 year history, the legacy of H.K.U.D. “LADO” Geelong has been touched and supported by the hands of more members than we can ever hope to thank individually; these events are our way of honouring your contribution to that history, and propelling the group for another 45 years!
