Yes, The Earth is orbiting around the Solar System’s center of mass which is known as the Barycenter. We believe that Earth orbit around Sun because this point often falls within mass of the Sun, but it can be shifted by the pull of larger planets. Which means some time, everything in the solar system is orbiting around empty space.
