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.
Precious was recently invited back Detroit by the Detroit Institute of Arts, where she was featured during an educational dance event last weekend with Nehemiah Kish, Principal of The Royal Ballet.
The age old idiom, “You can’t be what you can’t see,” rings true for these dedicated dancers.
