Covid-19 Nova Scotia Tango update:
Update: The conditions for gathering and continuing health precautions (as of Nov 10 2020). Dance & Fitness studios are closed until Dec 16, due to raising cases of Covid 19. All Tangonova public milongas and practicas are suspended until Dec 16, when the province will review the current restrictions. Social gathering bubbles are reduced from 10 to 5. This permits people to pursue tango as a hobby in small groups only, in the privacy of a home. Take care to keep your gatherings to 5 or less, practice social distancing between couples and wear masks. Use common sense.
If we are successful in bringing down the numbers, hopefully the province will soon return to:

Instruction: Anyone interested in studying tango with Tangonova, check class & events listing, and/or contact me (Margaret) personally via the web site or 902-229-8585. Include your specific interest, level and a phone number. I teach at all levels from new beginner to advanced. I organizing new classes according to the demand, so do let me know your interest so I make up small groups and find appropriate focus/level.
Private and small group instruction is recommended for those concerned about their safety and well-being due to the global pandemic. Though restrictions have lessened in our province as of Oct 1, many people remain hesitant to enter an embrace with anyone other than their regular partner. I respect everyone’s comfort level and work with people according to their preferences.
Tango Events: Milonga and practicas and group classes are now happening /see listings& description in “classes and events” on this web site.
Guest Teachers/Lectures: The best way for me to bring tango culture and learning to Halifax during the global pandemic is by Zoom. We are permitted to gather to listen or dance with some restrictions, but our borders are shut to any tango ambassadors from outside the Atlantic provinces ( and let’s face it, outside the Atlantic provinces is where 99% of the world’s tango is happening!) I am exploring educational opportunities, especially some superb lectures on tango history and music. I envision a hybrid learning environment: A group gathered to view together, while others tunie in from home. My goal is for us to continue our shared learning experiences so we become wiser dancers together!
