Encyclopedia > Gregg Burge

Gregg Burge was a tap dancer and choreographer. His credits ranged from television's The Electric Company to the film version of A Chorus Line (1985)—for which he served as assistant to choreographer Jeffrey Hornaday and performed the role of Richie, as he had on Broadway. A tap dancer from the age of 7, Burge won a scholarship to study at the Juilliard School when he was 17. He was nominated for two Tony Awards, two Drama Desk Awards, won the Fred Astaire Award twice, and also received honors for his Broadway performances in Song and Dance and Oh Kay! He performed as the scarecrow for four years in the Broadway production of The Wiz. He was also active in the music video industry, choreographing Michael Jackson's Bad video with Jeffrey Daniels and another video for the reggae band Steel Pulse. In addition, he ran a dance studio on Long Island. Officially Burge's cause of death was complications from a brain tumor, but in the dance community it is widely believed Burge died of AIDS complications.
