True Confession: I’ve been wanting to take my kids to a Baby Loves Disco for four and a half years. FOUR YEARS people!! This fun family event has been around since 2004 and was started in Philly (yeah, philly!) by Heather Murphy in 2004 (read a detailed account of how it all got started here). Baby Loves Disco is now an international dance party event taking place in venues across the country as well as the UK, Tokyo, and more.
Baby Loves Disco is an afternoon dance party featuring real music spun and mixed by real djs blending classic disco tunes From the 70s, & 80s guaranteed to get those little booties moving and grooving. The fun spills out from all corners of the club: bubble machines, baskets of scarves and egg-shakers, a chill-out room (with tents, books and puzzles), diaper changing stations, a full spread of healthy snacks and dancing, LOTS of dancing.
But at its core, Baby Loves Disco is a community event that brings kids together with kids and parents together with parents. Started by professional dancer (and professional mom) Heather Murphy, the idea was to create an alternative to the pre-packaged world of entertainment for young kids. Says Murphy, “We’re parents, we’re always looking for something new and different to do with the kids.” (Amen to that, Heather.)
Well, I’m delighted to tell you that I am finally taking my kids and I am not going to miss the next Baby Loves Disco Valentine’s Party to hit Shampoo nightclub in Philly happening on Sunday February 10th at 12 Noon. Come out for the only real family-friendly Valentines party in town to celebrate LOVE with your family and friends including chocolate treats, make-your-own valentines cards, mommy-daddy slow-dances and so much more!
