Covid-19 Update

We have waited, hoped and prayed for the world to heal in time for You, the dancers of the world – our EMPIRE Family – to come to New York City to yet again conquer the dance-floor.
 
We are regretfully cancelling our Empire 2020 event for the safety and health of everyone involved.
 
At the same time we are looking forward to a bright future filled with dancing, socializing and having fun together. Let’s just sit this out together and get ready for an incredible 2021.
 
We love you, we think of you and we will see you all very soon.
 
With Love from Giampiero, Vibeke, Allan & Katharina
