Abba Dance Party

by Elena on December 15, 2011 in Clever Girls,UbiChamp

It is no secret that I love all things Wii dance related. Dancing video games are great for family time as well as with friends. I may or may not get very competitive when I play with friends, especially at blogging conferences, but for the most part, dancing together means laughing together. And I am all for laughing.

This time, we had the chance to invite some in real life friends and neighbors over to get our groove on with Abba You Can Dance. We are an Abba loving family, with even Principessa knowing most of the Mamma Mia soundtrack.

An Abba dance party though? Requires special preparation.

Preparing for an Abba You Can Dance Party

What would a 70′s party be without fondue? And much to my surprise, I found pre-made fondue at Costco.  I cannot really think of anything that Costco does NOT carry….but I could pass up this cheese in a box find!

And well…dancing, with adults? In your basement? There must be delicious beverages to help us loose at least a few of our inhibitions. Abba You Can Dance | Ciao Mom

Then of course, you need to set the mood.

We are talking 70′s after all.

Last but not least, there must be dancing. Lots of dancing.

Watching some of our manly man dancers express their classical dancer personalities was um…funny. Also, talk about an arm and leg workout. Dance to “Winner Takes it All” enough times and you might even develop a ballerina body.

All the classics make the 26 song playlist….favorites like Mamma Mia, Dancing Queen, Does Your Mother Know, and Take a Chance on Me. You can dance, you can perform in a mini musical, and there is even a karaoke option.

The most appealing part of this game, in comparison to it’s Ubisoft Just Dance relatives (which I also love), is that these are songs that we all know.  They make you want to sing and dance….and the moves, although the maybe less complicated because they are more “classical” fool you into thinking that you are not half bad on the dance floor!

Come now, fess up….What is your favorite Abba tune?

That sounds like a fun night! I love fondue parties (I have 2 fondue pots–one was from my parent’s wedding gifts and one mine) and, of course, wine. And Mama Mia. Thanks, now I shall be singing Dancing Queen all day. Ah, there are worse things :~)

Now that sounds like my kind of party with prosecco and some cheese fondue and you better believe I’m going to be scouring our Costco to find some cheese-in-a-box before the holidays so we can get our Abba on!
