Dance Fusion is the creation of Dr. Linda Simon a Scottsdale Chiropractor and Bob Mace a valley realtor. Two entrepreneurs who share a love of dance and fitness. Dance Fusion is a safe, fun, supportive environment for all levels of dance and fitness fusing the benefits of both. “Fusion” describes our complementary, eclectic mix of disciplines.
Located in the Scottsdale Airpark, our studio features two dance and fitness spaces with real maple sprung floors, professional sound equipment, a one-of-a-kind dance library stocked with books and DVDs, shower facilities, and a showcase area for parties, trunk shows, and special events.
Linda Simon is a native of Brooklyn, New York. She moved to Scottsdale and established Simon Chiropractic in 1986 with her husband Dr. Ira Simon. They have two wonderful sons. Linda is currently an online faculty member of the University of Bridgeport College of Chiropractic and faculty member of Life West Chiropractic College for their off-site continuing education program. Dr. Ira is a published author and lecturer. Linda studied jazz and tap with Fred Kelly (Gene Kelly’s brother) at Pace University, NYC. She rediscovered her love of dance a few years ago and now enjoys tap, jazz, belly dance, ballet, Pilates, and yoga.
“Dance is for joy. There is no reason for anyone of any profession or age to stop dancing just because they have passed 18. With Dance Fusion, there is a new and exciting home.”
Bob Mace is a lifelong resident of the Valley and a top-ranked realtor. Active in the community, he volunteers for the Scottsdale League for the Arts, Scottsdale Culinary Festival, Eat, Drink & Be Pretty Extravaganza, Ballet Arizona, and Arizona Diabetes Association. He is married to Marian and has two grown daughters. Bob is passionate about all forms of dance. He discovered Zumba about six years ago, started a Zumba class at his church and began teaching classes for anyone who couldn’t afford a club membership. Bob dreamed about opening his own dance studio, a dream that recently came to fruition with Dance Fusion.
“Dance has given me a community, a family, and a place where all are accepted. Once you discover the joy, emotion and friendship of a dance community, you want that to continue. That’s why we created Dance Fusion.”
