Precious Adams - English National Ballet in Heads up! Posted February 18, 2019 · Edited February 18, 2019 by Tapfan Way to go Precious! Precious Adams has won the Emerging Artist Award at the National Dance Awards in London. She was also nominated for "Best Classical Performance/Female" for her role dancing the Calliope Rag in Kenneth McMillan's Elite Syncopations. I'm so happy for her because she is such a beautiful and versatile dancer whose degree of talent is beyond dispute.
