A BIRTHDAY FOR BERYL
November 2 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pmFREE
Determined, imperious, flighty, charming, Beryl McBurnie was born in Trinidad and went to New York in the early 1940s to study dance and drama. She also made a name for herself as a dancer and singer, Belle Rosette. But she turned her back on the bright lights to return to Trinidad… – Beryl McBurnie, by Judy Raymond
Save a dance for the Birthday Girl…”La Belle Rosette”! We’ll be celebrating the Late Great on her actual birth date on Saturday November 2nd, 7pm onwards. Come and hear excerpts from author Judy Raymond’s recently published biography on our founder, revel in and reminisce on her legacy through video archives provided by Banyan Archives, and take in a dance tribute to the larger-than-life icon.
