Created by Helena Bergström (Missing, Spring Tide, Annika Bengtzon: Crime Reporter) and co-written by Bergström and Denize Karabuda (Missing), Dancing Queens is about daring to embrace the unpredictable and being open to love and friendship in whatever form it comes. The Netflix Film will launch globally on June 3, exclusively on Netflix.

The story centers around Dylan Pettersson (Molly Nutley, Thicker than Water), a 23-year-old young woman from a small island in the Bohuslän archipelago with big dancing aspirations. When she’s talked into cleaning at the struggling drag club Queens, the club’s star dancer and choreographer (Fredrik Quiñones) accidentally discovers Dylan’s talent. She desperately wants to be a part of the show, but she’s a girl — and it’s a drag show — yet where there’s a will, there’s a way.

Fredrik Quiñones, choreographer of Dancing Queens, makes his acting debut in the film.

Costars include Marie Göranzon (Beck), Claes Malmberg (Death of a Pilgrim), Christopher Wollter (Quicksand), Rakel Wärmländer (Gåsmamman), Ann Westin (The Fjällbacka Murders), Max Ulveson (Greyzone), Mattias Nordkvist (The Restaurant), Razmus Nyström (Maria Wern), André Christenson (The Lawyer), Emil Almén (Real Humans), Fredrik Robertsson, Robert Fux (Full patte), Louie Indriana (E.T. Flow), and Dominika Peczynski (Army of Lovers).

A project of Sweetwater Productions, Dancing Queens is produced by Joana Sorobetea, and executive produced by Colin Nutley and Mikael Bergkvist. Peter Mokrosinski is the Director of Photography. Swedish fashion designer Camilla Thulin created the costumes, and Norwegian Gaute Storaas composed the film’s score.
