More Photos from Hometown Heroes
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.
