New York’s hottest new trend: Clubbing for kids

The music’s thumping, the dance floor’s packed and the bar’s bustling. Welcome to one of New York’s hottest nightclubs and a new generation of clubbers: six-year-olds.The VIP Room threw open its doors to children aged six to 12 on a Sunday afternoon to give them a taste of the nightclub, electronic music and dance scene in New York’s uber trendy Meatpacking District.

Among those hitting the decks was eight-year-old DJ Alden. Kids swarmed onto the dance floor, bopping up and down to beats with proud moms shimmying alongside or snapping pictures. “It was awesome!” said Alden, son of the organizers who jumped on the decks during the four-hour, Halloween-themed party. “The best thing was when I was in the DJ booth, DJing for everybody.”

A dancer dressed as a robot with LED lights on his legs, arms, head and body, took to the podium to whip up the crowd. When he starts shooting dry ice from two white guns, they go wild. The children scream with pleasure, reaching up their hands as the robot takes them through basic dance steps, getting them to feel the beat.

More than 300 people, including parents and younger siblings, attended the party organized by a husband and wife team whose company CirKiz opens top New York clubs to children once a month. “I love it. My daughter’s having a great time,” said Laura Lampert, a legal secretary from Harlem dressed in a leopard print dress with cat ears, pointing out her child twirling to the side.
