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.

To clarify, the word “milonga” has two meanings:  Milonga is  a specific a dance form and music , pre-dating tango. The Mllonga is also the name of  the social dance gathering where we dance tangos, milongas and vals (waltz). Confusing, I know! A class in Milonga teaches the dance form, steps and music.  A class in Milonga Etiquette is about the protocols at the social dance gathering!
