Trance Dance were formed in Stockholm, Sweden in 1986 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).
The group's first hit album, A-Ho-Ho, was released in February 1987, making number 19 on the Swedish album chart. "Do The Dance" would also be released as their debut single, and despite receiving a fair amount of airplay in clubs, it failed to chart in their native Sweden.
Despite this, their first hit came in October of that year, with "Don't Say Go" making number 2 in the singles chart. The follow-up single, "You're Gonna Get It", also reached number 2 in early 1988. "You're Gonna Get It" would prove to be their most successful single.
Their second album Dancing in the Shadows charted in March 1988, reaching number 4. Their third single "Joy Toy" would only reach number 13 in the singles chart, however, and the quickly-released (in November 1988) third album Off the Record would flop by only reaching number 27. Their final charting single, "Push", reached number 15 in May 1989.
With their popularity declining, Trance Dance fell out of the spotlight, charting for the final time with a greatest hits album, Greatest Hits Vol. 1. The album, released in February 1990, peaked at a lowly number 50 in the album chart.
