Chuck Green

(Charles Green)
tap dancer
Born: 1919
Birthplace: Fitzgerald, Georgia

Beloved by audiences, Chuck Green was one of the foremost American tap dancers. As a child he stuck bottle caps to his feet with tar and danced on the sidewalk for coins, until a talent agent took the hot-footed nine-year-old to New York. There Green studied tap, and up to 1944 performed with James “Chuckles” Walker as Chuck and Chuckles. As a soloist, he dazzled vaudeville audiences and performed in numerous revival shows. Tall and big-footed, Green was a surprisingly light dancer, becoming known as the most melodious and graceful of tap artists. He toured into the 1990s.

Died: 3/7/1997
