"THE ONE THING THAT CAN SOLVE MOST OF OUR PROBLEMS IS DANCING.”
- JAMES BROWN
Sometimes the answer to all of life’s problems is to throw down on the dancefloor! Dancing Room Only NYC, in contrast to today’s more voyeuristic club experiences, intends to take the focus back to the dancefloor. We inspire to hire some of the world’s top talents who've proven to be successful in maintaining a heavy dancefloor vibe reminiscent of the "good old days" alongside some of NYC's finest local talent. Cielo was recently named one of the Top 100 Clubs around the world and here’s why:
Located in New York City’s Meatpacking District, Cielo is a Manhattan nightclub that blends modernity with retro style, a self-proclaimed “mature” experience designed purely for music and dancing. Cielo is an intimate space—holding about 300 people—armed with a Funktion One sound system and a specially designed sunken dance floor, decked out with warm-hued tones bathed in an extensive lighting system.
Cielo largely focuses on house and techno, but it has played host to all sorts of parties, including Francois K’s weekly Monday Deep Space night focusing on music inspired by and in dialogue with dub, Wednesday’s house-focused Roots with Louie Vega and Kevin Hedge, and alternating special events on weekends.
“An embodiment of NY dance culture, this intimate, lounge-like venue, with a Funktion One set-up, is our most significant link between the ashes of the club kid era of the ’90s — when venues like Twilo, Limelight and Tunnel ruled the roost — and today’s generation coming through.
Resistant to the ongoing wave of EDM crashing over the US, ex-Pacha resident Nicolas Matar’s club has stuck to its roots, regularly hosting François K’s Deep Space parties and other local legends like Louie Vega, Danny Krivit and Def Mix top dogs David Morales and Hector Romero still, while Fritz Kalkbrenner and HELENA visited just last month.”

Dancing Room Only NYC Presents Forward Disco featuring Danny Krivit
“Danny Krivit's 45-year DJ career reads like the evolution of dance music itself. He grew up in the '60s, experiencing the very earliest days of New York disco, and later gained a musical education at some of the world's most legendary nightspots. The Loft, The Gallery, The Paradise Garage—Danny was a regular at them all. Remarkably, Krivit is one of only a handful of DJs other than Larry Levan to have played at The Garage.
Krivit's experiences in the '70s and '80s have had a lasting effect on him, informing almost every move he's made since. His legendary Body & Soul night, co-founded with François Kevorkian and Joe Claussell, and 718 Sessions, his still hugely popular monthly party, were established on principles laid down during this golden period. Aside from his illustrious DJ career, Krivit is also a remix legend. He has over 130 editing credits to his name, including his rework of MFSB's "Love Is the Message," which is considered by many to be the greatest edit of all time. “
