About the Condos Brothers

The three condos brothers, Frank, Steve, and Steve, were the children of Greek immigrants and they grew up in Philadelphia Pennsylvania in the eastern United States.

Frank Condos taught his two younger brothers Nick and Steve to tap dance before he embarked on his career dancing on stage with partner Mateo Olvera. When that partnership broke up, and Nick and Frank began dancing together as "The Condos Brothers". When Frank decided to become a solo dancer, Steve and Nick Condos became the new Condos Brothers.

The Condos Brothers tap dancing duo broke up in the mid-1950's, and Steve Condos continued performing as a solo act. Steve was featureed in the film "Tap" as one of the legends of tap dancing. He died two years later, at age 71, when he had a heart attack after a performance in Lyons, France.
