Welcome to the web site for the dance enterprises of Tim Lamm. This site also archives the dance partnership of Tim Lamm and Paula Harrison between 2008 and 2021.

Lead vintage balls and community dances.
Call English country dances.
Collaborate with you to bring period dance into a music concert, opera or play.
Tim is happy to work with dance organizations, arts associations, music groups, youth groups, schools, clubs, libraries, churches, and other organizations.
"Tim Lamm and Paula Harrison are the best dance instructors my husband and I have ever experienced...
"Paula and Tim are fabulous dancers, yes. But they are also fabulous instructors. They are encouraging and fun. They know their dances. They teach in a body focused way, in that corrections are made not because of a particular style rule, but because that's the way the body moves best. You get them BOTH, so each person is fully analyzed as you dance together...
"For beginners, I think Paula and Tim would be perfect. Learning to dance as to what feels right is so natural. For long term dancers like us, they are also perfect. Tim and Paula challenge and inspire us, but they also respect that we know what we want. We travel three hours one way to take lessons . We have never been disappointed. Dancing is romantic, fun, and good exercise. If you are looking to add dancing to your life, try Tim and Paula. You won't be sorry."

"Honestly, this is the best value in Lexington. Tim and Paula are amazing teachers. They are very patient and knowledgeable. I am using them for lessons for the first dance at my wedding reception. Going with Steps in Time for our dance lessons was one of the best ideas."
"Thank you for such a good beginning waltz class...
"I thought your class was perfect for me because there were so many ways you prepared us ahead of time to make the next task easy. One of the best things that helped me was that you never seemed to be rushing, but were always calm and relaxed. It helped me to remember that the main point is to enjoy the dance. I also think that you are very good at seeing where we needed more help, and you explained things in a different way to help us understand..."
