Steve Condos (October 12, 1918 – September 16, 1990) was an American tap dancer. He was a member of the Condos Brothers, with siblings Nick and Frank.

The Condos Brothers are credited in the film Wake Up and Live (1937), in which two of the brothers are introduced by orchestra leader Ben Bernie and dance two tap routines, but the brothers are not further identified. They were also credited in the film “Moon over Miami” (1941) , as specialties.

He danced in the films Song of the Open Road (1944), Meet Me After the Show (1951), Tap (1989), and numerous others. He collaborated with Jimmy Slyde on a program of jazz tap improvisation at the Smithsonian Institution during the 1980s.

He died at 71 of a heart attack, in Lyon, France, in a dressing room of the Maurice Ravel auditorium shortly after performing at the Lyon International Dance Biennial
