Fil-Am kid DJ’s burning up the dance floor

UNION CITY, NJ — This is not your usual kids party. Party organizer “Little Club Heads” has redefined what a children’s party should be like, with a fun and safe dance club for kids up to 12-years-old.

The resident club DJ’s are 11-year-old Fil-Am twin “turn-tablists,” Kayla and Amira Wells — the owner’s daughters.

“Being young DJ’s is really fun, because I get to do it with my sister,” said Kayla Wells. “I get to see people dancing and having fun.”

“Other kids see us as DJs, and they look up to us,” said her sister Amira. “They say what a great job we do.”

Amira and Kayla’s video showing off their mad skills on the turn table has gone viral, with more than 1.2 million views since it was uploaded on Facebook last September.

The wonder twins have DJ-ed for the New York Knicks in front of a crowd of 30,000 at Madison Square Garden.

DJ-ing for New York Fashion Week was also a dream come true for the little fashionistas.

The twins have also appeared on national TV shows such as “The Real” on Fox, as well as on the Wendy Williams Show. They were even invited back to DJ for Wendy’s fundraisers.

“It’s really fun… we get to do a DJ set or mix, and then the audience clapped for us. It’s really exciting,” said Kayla.

“Cake Boss” Buddy Valastro, of Carlo’s Bakery, came by with a surprise birthday cake for the twins – who celebrated their 11th birthday last December.

The girls have never been to their grandparents’ birthplace in the Philippines. Their mom, Christine Wells, has only visited Manila twice in her lifetime after she was born in Manhattan.

“They love Filipino food, so you would think that they’re full Filipinos,” said Christine. “They just love to eat it, same thing with my husband…their Lolo and Lola, when they’re around, they incorporate some of the Filipino culture…so they’re around that type of environment.”

“We would love to get Amira and Kayla some [DJ] venues in the Philippines,” said the twins’ father, Elija Wells. “We would love to come in and visit part of their homeland. That would be amazing.”

Next to creating their own dance mixes, the twins dream of one day making it big in Hollywood, and at the same time, finish a degree in a university.

“I wanna be a big DJ and a lawyer,” said Amira.

“I wanna be a really big DJ too,” said Kayla. “And a doctor!”

Their advice for kids their age is to “follow their dreams… learn, achieve, and believe” what they want to accomplish.

Amira and Kayla will be seen showing off their skills in an upcoming episode of the reality TV baking series, Cake Boss.
