The details


Olga "Ollie" Burgoyne (June 12, 1878, Chicago – April 2, 1974), also known as Ollie Burgoyne-Calloway, was a dancer, actress, and businesswoman during the Harlem Renaissance. She made her mark as a performer in shows such as Follow Me (1923), developed by Mamie Smith.

Burgoyne danced in vaudeville shows internationally in the early part of her career and for a time lived in Russia, owning a lingerie shop in Saint Petersburg. Upon her return to the United States, she got parts in various Broadway shows throughout the 1920s and 1930s, including Make Me Know It (1929), Constant Sinner (1931), and Run Lil Chillun (1933). In 1931 she was part of a New York dance troupe called Bronze Ballet Plastique, later renamed as the New Negro Art Theater Dance Group. In her later life she taught dance in the movie industry and had a bit part in the film Laughter (1930). She died in Oxnard, California, in 1974.
