Vance Anderson, originally from Fort Walton Beach, Florida, currently resides in Orlando, Florida. He began his marching career in his hometown at Fort Walton Beach High School. Like many, he began as an instrumentalist and started his first colorguard season during the winter of his junior year. He spent his senior year at Choctawhatchee High School and finished his scholastic marching career with the 2014 Choctawhatchee World Guard.
Vance is currently studying at the University of Central Florida where he is working towards obtaining his BSN and license to become a registered nurse. He also teaches high schools in the local Orlando and Tampa areas. He has had the pleasure of working with the Lake Nona, J.W. Mitchell, and Timber Creek High School colorguards as a choreographer and technician throughout his time living in Orlando.
Vance’s outdoor career began in 2015 with Carolina Crown. He spent his age out with the Boston Crusaders in 2017. Indoors, he is currently entering his fifth winter with UCF Pegasus World (2015-Present), where he serves as a third year captain. Vance is beyond excited to be a part of this journey with the 2019 edition of Phantom Regiment. He is filled with anticipation to work alongside the staff, administration, and the members of the drum corps.
