Trance Dance was a Swedish pop group who had a number of hits in the late 1980s. The group were somewhat rock-influenced, with their music being driven by guitars and other instruments not fully characteristic of a late 1980s pop group. Despite their name, their music did not resemble trance at all.Trance Dance were formed in Sweden in 1985 as a seven-piece group consisting of Ben Marlene (vocals), Pelle Hökengren (guitar), P.J. Widestrand (keyboards), John Stark (bass), Sören Johanssen (drums) and the sisters Susanne and Yvonne Holmström (additional vocals). Ben Marlene had previously been in the Finnish group French Kiss, who existed between 1982 and 1984 and made two albums. Marlene and the Holmström sisters are Swedish speaking Finns.
