Beryl Mc Bernie
Beryl McBurnieTrinidad and Tobago's First Lady of Dance
Beryl McBurnie is exultant at an evening of nostalgia in her honour on October 16, 1993. Mc Burnie garnered in her life many tributes, official as well as from the people she taught and influenced. Called the "Queen of Dance", the "Grande Dame of Dance", "The Doyenne of West Indian Dance", "La Belle Rossette", this woman, slight in size, was always pushing and prodding, determined to get whatever she wanted but what she wanted was seldom for Beryl. She was always chasing some cause or the other.
TRINIDAD and Tobago's First Lady of Dance Beryl McBurnie died yesterday morning at the St Clair Medical Centre. She was 86.
