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.

Focus for Milonga Class 
– Using a walking pattern from tango as the milonga basic,  learn to add on steps and figures to it systematically, always returning to the basic. This formula has proven very successful in getting anyone who has completed a beginner tango class into milonga, so they can dance it socially. NO more sitting out the milonga tandas!  I also will emphasize how milonga is NOT tango…but has a different sentiment and cadence. 
Int/Adv Workshops series!
