Welcome to Tangonova


“This is how to dance the tango!
Feel the blood rise to your face with every beat;
While an arm winds like a snake
Around a waist that is about to break.
This is how to dance the tango!”


Founded by dance instructor Margaret Spore, Tangonova is dedicated to establishing an authentic tango presence in Nova Scotia. Intimate, improvisational and challenging. Argentine tango is truly the dance of fearless passion.

Tangonova MILONGA Schedule Winter 2017

Winter Milonga calendar for Halifax (tango social dance parties)!

Note:  The word Milonga has two meanings: here  it means the tango dance party, but  the word  also may refer to a type of music and dance in the tango genre of tango, vals, and milonga, such as when you see a class in Milonga listed – that is the dance form, not the social gathering. I don’t know the exact historical basis for the word acquiring two meanings. If you do, let me know. Very confusing for beginner dancers! At the milonga dance event, we play tangos, waltz and milonga music.

Tangonova Milonga: every other Saturday at 1313 Hollis St, parking lot north side.Usually 9- midnight or 8-11 pm. Check web site calendar for details re start time and pre-milonga class offerings.
