Le Roy was born John LeRoy Schotte in Cincinnati, Ohio, on December 10, 1913.

He broke into New York theater as a dancer, and quickly worked his way into Broadway roles, where his dance style created a sensation in the 1931 Ziegfeld Follies. On April 12, 1934, he married Ruth Hedwig Dod (born March 13, 1911, died July 1, 1979), who had been one of his dance partners. He also began doing a series of musical film shorts for Vitaphone and Warner Brothers Pictures.

Aside from his work on Broadway and in film, he performed in revues, vaudeville, and as a featured entertainer in New York's nightclub scene.

He was selected as a feature performer by Bob Hope for Hope's TV Premier appearance.

Le Roy died on May 2, 1985, in Hackensack, New Jersey, of complications following heart surgery.
