April 26-28: Awakening Your Tango Body:   Spring Tango Intensive with special guest participant tanguera Brigitta Winkler (Berlin/NYC), presented by Margaret Spore (Tangonova) & Michael Scott, 

Co-founder of the performance group Tango Mujeres, and a leader in the re-introduction of Argentine tango in Europe in the late 1980s,  Brigitta Winkler remains one of my most influential tango mentors (starting in 1998). Trained also in  Body-Mind Centering,  Brigitta has an inspiring ability to  awaken in dancers the physical and  emotional tools required to make our tango shine.  A previous guest of Tangonova  in Halifax in 2009 and 2010, she is well-remembered  for her savvy contributions to our tango learning.

Brigitta has collaborated and/or  partnered with many wonderful tango dancers: Cacho Dante, Tomas Howlin, Sharna Fabiano,  to name a few.  A gifted follower, who also leads, Brigitta is an advocate for women tangueras,   promoting the concept  tango beyond roles. She offers  enriching women’s tango retreat yearly, such as Aloha  Girls.
