VLDA student Stella Mackenzie danced this VLDA Contemporary solo on 2019 and WON the 14u Contemporary section at the Sydney Eisteddfod!
At VLDA we create beautiful group pieces and solos in Classical, Contemporary, Jazz, Hip Hop and Musical Theatre for those selected to represent VLDA on the competitive stage in Sydney and around the world…
VLDA student Laura Van Loon won the best Junior Contemporary Dancer at the Cecchetti International Competition (CICB) in Florence, Italy, in 2017, having performed both her Classical Repertoire solo and her VLDA Contemporary solo. She then went on to pursue her professional dance career from there with great success.’
This VLDA Lyrical solo (danced by Stella Mackenzie in 2019) has seen great success as the VLDA dancers who are selected to perform and compete with it are not only of a very high technical standard but also of great artistic skill and integrity.
At VLDA all dancers are nurtured in their love of dance and taught to dance well with great attention to correct dance technique (in all genres) and with great attention to artistry and interpretation’
