Gregg Burge (November 14, 1957 – July 4, 1998) was a tap dancer and choreographer.
Burge graduated from New York's prestigious Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Performing Arts in 1975. His credits ranged from television's The Electric Company to the stage and 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.
Burge was nominated for two Drama Desk Awards, twice won the Fred Astaire Award, receiving accolades for his Broadway performances in Song and Dance and Oh, Kay! for which he received a Tony Award nomination. He performed as the Scarecrow for four years in the Broadway production of The Wiz and appeared in the long-running Sophisticated Ladies.
Burge choreographed Michael Jackson's "Bad" music video (directed by Martin Scorsese) with Jeffrey Daniel and a video for the reggae band Steel Pulse. Burge operated a dance studio on Long Island.
Burge died of a brain tumor in Atlanta on July 4, 1998 at age 40.
