Francesca Perryman went to see Tango Select as part of Reading Fringe Festival 2015. 

"Reading's own Tango band, Tango Select, was featured in the main hall, playing classical tangos, vals and milongas, perfect for dancing or sitting back and enjoying.


The band was fantastic and the dance room provided the perfect backdrop to the tango music. 

..... most of the audience was there for the dancing..... and were truly mesmerizing to watch.

The delight on some of the dancers faces was lovely to see – they were in their element. People from all walks of life were there and it was a joy to watch."

"A fabulous opportunity to hear and dance to live tango music." Rising Sun Arts Centre, Reading

Tango Select at The Rising Sun

"Tangos, vals and milongas from Reading’s own Tango Select. Beautiful music; worth coming just to listen to the band play, but also very danceable. Always a great afternoon of socialising and dancing."

Come and join TANGO SELECT on Sunday June 18th 5 - 7.30pm for our Rising Sun Milonga. (Don't forget to bring your dad as it's Fathers Day.) Please note, the venue has now changed to the Great Hall at Reading University. RG1 5AQ. The dancing there will continue until 11pm.
