Greenbelt in 2012

A photo blog about Greenbelt, Maryland in its 75th anniversary year

More Photos from Hometown Heroes

June 2

In early June I posted some photos from Alight Dance Theater’s Hometown Heroes dance performance at Greenbelt Museum. Those photos were taken at a dress rehearsal on June 2, the day before the show premiered. Tomorrow, on July 22, the dancers will perform their last few shows, so I thought I would post a few more photos, all from June 2.

Kelly McCarty applies lipstick before the performance.

Michelle Cardoso wipes windows at the garden side of the Greenbelt Museum house.

Angella Foster

The magazine is The Saturday Evening Post from May 21, 1938.

The book is Sealtest Kitchen Recipes: World’s Fair Edition from 1939.

Valerie Branch

Kelly McCarty is the tour guide today.

Melissa Brady

Melissa Brady uses a copy of the present day Greenbelt News Review to scoop up dust. The paper was named The Cooperator in the early days of Greenbelt.

Between two sets, Angella Foster and Monica Warren put away utensils for the next dancer.

Valerie Branch and Michelle Cardoso walk on a pedestrian path by one of Greenbelt’s famous underpasses.

Three audience members are invited to attend this last rehearsal of the day.

  1. hi, we are family of Kelly McCarty – one of the dancers – can we get copies of the photos she is in-or get them on a disc? Thank you, Leslie McLaughlin
