VLDA is well know as a very highly achieving dance school in CECCHETTI Ballet competitions, at State level, National Level and International level:
The NSW Cecchetti Medal Tests:
At the NSW Cecchetti Ballet Medal Tests held annually VLDA has consistently placed since 2010 with winners and Runner up placings of the event in the majority of those years. VLDA has had winners and Runner-up place getters (second place getters) and ‘Honourable mention’ students in each of the following Medal Test sections: Pre Junior, Junior and  Intermediate
I encourage all VLDA ballet students to dance in this competitive event, if they would like to
The Cecchetti National Lucie Saranova Medal Awards:
VLDA students have competed and placed in this annual event and work towards it diligently. I select talented VLDA students to prepare for this event
The ‘Competition International Cecchetti Ballet’ (CICB):
This international competition  is held every three years in a different city around the world.
I select highly talented VLDA students to prepare for this event.
In 2017 it was held in Florence Italy where VLDA student Laura Van Loon won the Junior Contemporary Award for the best Junior Contemporary dancer at the international event. She also was awarded various scholarships to some major Ballet schools in Europe which she fulfilled that year.
(The event effectively ‘launched’ her career as after one year of full time study at the Royal Ballet School in Antwerp Belgium (2018) she was given a full soloist professional contract with the Nuremberg Ballet Company, Germany, by its director, Mr Goyo Montero on Nov 19, 2018. Laura has just turned 16 when she accepted this offer)
