POTTSVILLE'S hills will be alive with the sound of music on Saturday.

But forget about singing nuns.

Mamma Mia, no way.

It's ABBA songs that will cut through the night air as the Pottsville Starlettes dance to the songs of movie Mamma Mia on the night.

An exciting dancing night is planned starting at 7pm at Tri Care Hastings Point.

The girls will be dancing the numbers live on stage.

The group formed three years ago with dance classes led by Brazilian actress and dancer Ale Salisbury every Wednesday nights in Pottsville.

Ale has 20 years modern ballet and jazz experience and several musical plays acting and dancing in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

"When I moved to Australia five years ago I decided to focus dance classes in creating original dances based on musical movies that were a worldwide success," she said.

"The idea was instantly adored by the girls in my class from Pottsville and the Tweed area."

The group has produced Burlesque Concert in July and Chicago Concert in December last year.

For this July, the group are presenting Mamma Mia Concert.

Dirty Dancing and Moulin Rouge are in the next year's list.

Pottsville Starlettes Dance Group is now open for new members to start in January 2013.

For more information call Ms Salisbury on 0411 340 999 or email alessandrasalisbury@hotmail.com.

Tickets are $5 and will be on sale at the door.
