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.

I’ve always loved this recording of   “9 de Julio” and I like the joyful way this young couple is dancing to it!

Introduction to Tango For you and your friends!

Our you curious about Argentine Tango and wondering if it is the dance for you? Tangonova’s founder Margaret Spore provides a personalized approach to new students.  “A Taste of Tango” sessions may be scheduled  at your convenience.

Tango is a unique social dance, more challenging than most and ultimately more rewarding.  Some people love  learning the subtle body  communications that allow them to  lead and follow tango’s elegant sensuous moves, while others simply cannot be bothered in today’s age of instant gratification.  Find out for yourself.

Primarily Monday evenings at and Sunday afternoons are set aside for Taste of Tango meet-ups but other times are possible.
