VBKA Demonstration Teams

We have two actively performing Demonstration Teams at VBKA.  Both Teams perform for various functions throughout the year in Indian River County.  

Performances by the VBKA Demonstration Teams: 


  • The Fire Fighter’s Fair
  • Relay for Life
  • Senior Resource Association
  • Indian River Estates
  • Vero Beach Museum of Art
  • School PTA Meetings and Festivals
  • Health Fairs
  • VBKA Events


To be eligible to become a Demonstration Team member, students must show commitment and high spirit in their regular training and participate in VBKA events. Further, membership is based on a student’s academic standing. We believe that Academic Achievement is very important, so all members must maintain A’s/B’s on their report cards. Being invited to join a Demonstration Team is an honor, and continuing to be a member is a privilege.
