we love to dance!
News! Martina & Lorne certified as senior fitness instructors with the Canadian Centre for Activity and Aging - University of Western Ontario.
A professional clarinetist for 30 years, Lorne discovered Argentine Tango on a trip to Buenos Aires and was immediately hooked. He began studying with Judy Knee in St. John’s NL; 3 years later he met Halifax tango teacher Margaret Spore, and followed her invitation to a weekend workshop of master teacher Tomas Howlin (Montreal/Argentina) in Halifax. It was there that he met his dream partner Martina, who had just started dancing tango. Together they have traveled to festivals in Toronto, Freiburg/Germany and Copenhagen/Denmark, taken classes with internationally renowned teachers including Brigitta Winkler, Tomas Howlin, Sebastian Arce, Adam & Ciko and Murat & Michelle Erdemsel.
Martina’s childhood dream was to become a dancer but it was not before reaching her forties, that she started dancing Flamenco, Contemporary, African Dance and Argentine Tango. Movement for her means life and she explores many forms of somatic body work like Laban/Bartenieff and Feldenkrais. More recently she discovered adult ballet and pilates as an ideal support for her tango dancing.
Tango is our passion which we share through our approach as community teachers, emphasizing musicality and communication between partners. We are based in Halifax, but are available "on demand" to dance with you where you are.
