William Bill Burdick

William "Bill" Burdick

William "Bill" Burdick taught us to move with the grace of times gone by. A professional dancer and performer with a long and distinguished career, and -- by the time we met him -- a recognized expert on period movement William Harry Burdick was also a funny, bawdy guy with a delightfully decadent laugh. He lived life to the fullest.

He was Bill to some, including his big brother Jacques, but was said to prefer William. By any name, he was a true friend and an incredible asset to us in our years in the department.

Below are some family photos that Jacques was kind enough to share with us.
