Dancing Dream: The Tribute to ABBA
'You can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life!'
DANCING DREAM: The Tribute to ABBA, the greatest pop super-group from Sweden, electrifies audiences of all ages with the best hits "Mamma Mia," "Dancing Queen," "Take a Chance," "Fernando," "Waterloo," and many more. This tribute group was originated by two European singers Halina Ulatowski and Agnes Jawien in 2009, who started performing their tribute show as a duet.
That same year, the Broadway-based movie Mamma Mia was released, which made the wonderful music of ABBA even more popular. Due to a growing demand for an ABBA tribute band, the singers formed a 6-piece live band with an arsenal of seasoned musicians. Some of them have been working with major recording artists such as Blondie, Chubby Checker, Funk Face, and even Mamma Mia on Broadway to name just a few.
Since then, Dancing Dream (formerly known as ABBA Girlz) has performed over 300 concerts all
over the US and in Canada. In 2012, the band was featured on The Colbert Report, a very popular show hosted by Stephen Colbert. It was just a short humorous skit, but it was watched by millions because of the show’s global popularity. In 2015 the group changed the name ABBA Girlz to Dancing Dream which reflects and combines the titles of two songs "Dancing Queen;" and "I Have a Dream"
This New York City based ABBA Tribute Band has grown quite the cult following
through performing at many venues, large and small. The very first show they played under their
name, was the legendary BB King Blues Club and Grill in Time Square New York City on July 1, 2012.
The number of bookings the band has under their belt has been attributed to that show, and as a
result, the bands popularity is ever-growing! They are currently one of the best ABBA Tribute bands in the country.
When asked for the main key to their success, Halina, the bands leader, founder and manager
answers with a happy smile, "Our love for ABBA and an undying passion for what we do! Every show is very important, and we respect all of our clients, regardless of the size of the venue or the audience. We have so much fun and get so much satisfaction, being able to do what we love!”
Some of the Dancing Dream clients included: Make a Wish Foundation, Astrazeneca
Pharmaceutical in Boston MA, International Bio Convention in Washington DC (2011) and in Boston

The band is very flexible in their performance as they are available as a six or four-piece group,
which enables them to be suitable and affordable for many private events in smaller venues as well as a group of up to 12 people depending on the clients needs. The band carries liability insurance and can provide a certificate of insurance for every venue. They are very well-organized and make each event a priority. Their clients trust is extremely important to their ability to function as a band, and they will never pass up a great review!
