Bootlegger's Ball@ Craft Local

Tesseract Dance Collective welcomes all to this superstar belly dance showcase and party! Local and regional dancers will take the stage at Craft Local, May 4 at 7:30 p.m. for an exclusive evening of traditional, fusion, cabaret, group, solo and improvisational belly dance that will knock your boots off. This is the gala evening showcase of the Sapphire Bellydance Festival!

Long gone are the days of rum-running and hiding flasks of illicit liquor in boots. With the end of prohibition came the end of some of the best kept secrets of drink and entertainment in Montana – until now.

Calling to the Montana roots of the 1920s, The Bootlegger's Ball Belly Dance Show evokes the sentiment of coming together for good drink and great entertainment – and Craft Local is the just the right place.

Headliners include the brilliant and sensual fusion megastar Michelle Sorensen, and the timeless icon Mardi Love. The vintage flair of Mardi Love’s dance will add to the 1920’s ambiance while Michelle Sorenson’s witchy and wild skills will have you seeing double.

This show is for 21 years and older. Craft Local offers the best local beer and wine Montana has to offer and an impressive menu of pub fare.

Tickets are $15 and can be purchased online at or at Barjon's Books after April 17th or at the doors. Seats are limited. VIP seating is $50 with the best seat in the house, a handmade bootlegger’s ball mug by artist Jesse Jeane Harkness, a drink on us, a table charcuterie tray and special front row attention. You will not want to miss this incredible evening of dance artistry!
