Ballet C&V Ladies Quickfire Questions

Quickfire Questions: Precious Adams

Precious Adams answers our quickfire questions about pointe shoes, music, and her favourite dancers.

Quickfire Questions Team Black Swan, Team White Swan, Team Swanilda or Team Dying Swan?

I would say team all four because I want to dance all of those roles. But I guess Dying Swan if I had to pick one. I am very passionate and I’m told that my arms are my best asset.

What is your preferred pointe shoe brand?

Ooh, that is hard because I have been happy with may different brands. Freeds look the best but don’t last very long. Gaynor’s are so popular in Moscow so I got a pair.

I like them but I have been using Tchika from Sansha for the past 3 years because they cost 20 bucks a pair, last a long time and pretty much look good on everyone’s feet.

What is one ballet exercise you especially like or find helpful?

Pilates in general! But thera-banding my feet twice a day makes a big difference, I do it to warm up my feet before class and to strength my ankles at night.

You have been promoted to principal dancer – which company is it with, and what is your debut role?

This is a really hard question! Dutch (Het) National Ballet and I would be debuting either as Carmen or Juliet.

What have been your favourite and least favourite variations to perform so far?

Gamzatti I liked performing more than I thought I would. The Spanish variation from Paquita would be my least favourite.

What’s on your playlist at the moment?

I listen to iTunes radio all the time but I am currently obsessed with Alt-J (∆) , Childish Gambino’s new album, Vampire Weekend and some Frank Ocean.

Who are your favourite male and female dancers?

So many favorites! But top three today: Ekaterina Maximova, Alessandra Ferri and Sylvie Guillem.

Males dancers: Eric Underwood, Mikhail Baryshnikov and Artem Ovcharenko.

If you could be anyone for one day, who would it be?

Myself when I was a baby.


Thank you, Precious!
