This is the first in the series of Abba dances that I wrote to celebrate
    the Australian stage show Mamma Mia which opened in June 2001.  I hope you find something that you like in at least one of the
dances and enjoy listening to the old classic songs which are
now so much a part of our Australian culture. 

See you on the floor sometime....  Jan
