W. Burnet (17**-18**) was an amateur performer, primarily a dancer.

A member of C.E. Boniface's society, Honi Soit qui Mal y Pense, he appeared as "Cabriolin" (as well as one of the "Turkish dancers") in De Burger Edelman (Molière) on 28 May, 1825; and on 15 October, 1825 appeared as a dancer in various items in "het groot finaal ballet" (the grand final ballet") which followed on performances of De Vrouw met Twee Mannen (Pixérécourt) and The Liar (Foote).

Possibly a relation (son?) of the A. Burnet who had on occasion sold tickets for performances by Tot Leering en Vermaak and Tot Nut en Vermaak between 1803 and 1809.
