    PORTSMOUTH — 3S Artspace and Nikki Hentz announce the premiere of Studio 319: A Studio 54 Immersive Dance Experience held at 3S Artspace on August 17.

    Attendees will be transported to a time and place where anything is possible, decadance prevails, and everyone is a star. Guests are invited to come dressed for the occasion.

    I personally will have a few costume changes throughout the night, but it's all going to be glittery and gold. The vibe is all about excess, and I am certainly going to be ‘extra’ in my wardrobe choices!” said co-creator, Nikki Hentz.

    “The team at 3S is so supportive of local artists and creative types bringing their ideas to reality and they encourage taking it to the next level,” said Hentz. “My original idea was to just play disco music, but the folks at 3S were like, ‘Why stop there?! Let's make this an immersive experience and really transport people.’ My little egg of an idea hatched, grew wings and really soared! That is the great thing about 3S; it's more than just a space. It's an incubator for creative ideas and energies. The Performance Space has such a great vibe and the staff is amazing and so helpful. I can't imagine throwing this party with this level of detail anywhere else!”

    The Performance Space at 3S will transform into a discoteque where guests can get down to the ultimate 70s disco sampler spun by disc jockey, Timothy Fife.

    "One of my favorite genres is disco and I am so excited to DJ this party.  All the music I'll be spinning will be actual songs played at 54. Some will be songs you'll know, others you might not, but you will definitely be dancing all night long," said Tim Fife..

    Guests might dance on stardust with a celebrity, ride a horse, or even spot the doorman taking bribes in exchange for a chance to get inside.

    Hentz said, “They can expect to see folks in suits finally letting their hair down, hooping, balloons, and a very...climactic performance, but they'll just have to make sure to be there to see and be seen!”

    This event encourages letting loose, being in the moment, and converging on the dance floor.

    Hentz said, “There was a line in the recent Studio 54 documentary that really stuck with me, where a woman was describing how when you were at Studio 54, you were dancing with everyone. From celebrities, to drag queens, to an elderly woman-- people from all walks of life, were dancing and letting go together. It was a safe space to explore their inner freaks. Like the song says: ‘Ah, freak out! Le freak, c'est chic.’”

    Glitter and glamour beyond the velvet rope awaits. Join us!

    Studio 319 is for ages 21+ and tickets can be purchased at 3SARTS.ORG.
