Dyllon Burnside Biography – Dyllon Burnside Wiki
Dyllon Burnside is an American actor and singer. He is known for his role as Ricky Evangelista, a dancer, in the FX television series Pose.
Burnside got his first start at age 12 when he performed as the lead singer of hip-hop/R&B boy band “3D” with 2 of his cousins and managed by his mother, touring with the likes of Stevie Wonder and Rihanna, with a distribution deal with Atlantic Records and performing in venues including Madison Square Garden and the Nokia Theater. After 10 years, he began feeling constricted by fronting a boy band and wanted to explore arts less traditionally masculine: “The things that I was interested in didn’t necessarily align with my family’s or society’s idea of what it meant to be a man. … I can still be a male and sing Mozart or take a ballet class and that it not have anything to do with anything other than I wanted to take a ballet class.”
As a result, he enrolled at the CAP21 conservatory to take a vocal major, moved to New York City and took acting and dance classes including studying for a bachelor’s degree in media studies and writing from The New School. While at CAP21, Burnside starred in the Tupac-inspired musical Holler if Ya Hear Me on Broadway in 2014, where he played Anthony. While studying Burnside was also a part of NBC’s Peter Pan Live!, HBO’s High Maintenance and performed in BeBe Winans’s musical Born For This in both Atlanta and Washington, D.C.
Burnside has also worked as a film producer on the award-winning short The Jump and as theatrical producer on Hold Up The Light at the non-profit Arena Stage in Washington, D.C. He has also taught performing arts workshops and spoken at schools about how studying performing arts can be empowering and help young people find their means of self-expression.
