Steps in Time Historical Dance
Tim and Paula formed their partnership “Steps in Time Historical Dance” in 2008. Their repertoire included Renaissance and Baroque couple dances, English and American country dances, Appalachian dances, Scandinavian dances, all the popular ballroom dances from the Regency Period through the Jazz Age, plus various contemporary couple dances.
Paula and Tim regularly taught classes in vintage and contemporary couple dancing. They taught waltz classes at Christmas Country Dance School in Berea, KY in 2010-2012 and 2015. They have led workshops in waltz and other traditional dances at Hands Four Spring Weekend in Berea, Fleur de Lis Fling in Louisville, Blue Moon contra weekend in Huntsville, AL, and the November Dance Weekend in Arkansas. They also taught a number of dance sessions at Dance Flurry Festival in Saratoga Springs, NY, in February 2013, and they were the dance instructors for the Scott Joplin Ragtime Festival in Sedalia, MO, in 2015, 2017 and 2018. (They were scheduled to go back to Sedalia in 2020 and 2021, but the COVID-19 pandemic nixed that.)
Tim has a talent for breaking dance moves down into small, incremental steps and explaining moves clearly. Paula is known for her graceful style and superb skills as a “follow”. Together they made a great teaching team, speaking from experience to both men and women dancers and appealing to verbal, visual and kinesthetic learners.
