Famed Dancer Precious Adams Returns to Detroit Inspires Young Dancers at Ballet Detroit

At the Detroit Opera House, in a world where 5 days a week, sweat and determination squeeze each dancer’s muscle into hundreds of perfect plies, the young students of Ballet Detroit received a dollop of inspiration from famed ballerina, Precious Adams. Precious, currently a dancer with the English National Ballet in London, found her love for ballet right here in Detroit, under the tutelage of Ballet Detroit’s Artistic Director, Sergey Rayevskiy.
