The Empire Experience
21+ Event $25 per person
The Empire Experience brings you the magic of a live concert, the production and vivaciousness of a Vegas-style theatrical performance, and the interaction only found in Studio54. As an interactive experience, the ambiance of the venue will be designed to fit each month’s theme (from 1920’s flappers and jazz to Motown R&B to 1970’s discotheque) headlined by our very own Pop Sensation and co-creator Fia NyXX, featuring a unique mashup of her original music with well-known hits. A sexy evening of dance and entertainment (to be enjoyed by all genders), you will be imbibing and schmoozing with LA’s top dancers, choreographers and performers in an innovative and creative environment. A two hour performance, the party will continue to bar close with drink specials and a DJ to dance the night away. The show is created by Fia NyXX and Michael De Angelo.
Meet the Founders
Michael De Angelo, co-founder of The Empire Experience, dancer, choreographer and creative director began his journey as a creator at age 12 when his Harlem Shake brought down the house in an unexpected dance circle. Michael went on to attend Columbia College in Chicago as a dance major training intensely in ballet, modern, jazz, and hip hop.

"Dance is your pulse, your heartbeat, your breathing. It's the rhythm of your life. It's the expression in time and movement, in happiness, joy, sadness and envy."
- Jaques D'Amboise
