We study the structure of low-lying states in 6Li, 6He, 8Be, 8B, 12C, and 16O, using ab initio symmetry-adapted no-core shell model. The results of our study demonstrate that collective modes in light nuclei emerge from first principles. We investigate the impact of the symmetry-adapted model space on spectroscopic properties and, in the case of the ground state of 6Li, on elastic electron scattering charge form factor. The results confirm that only a small symmetry-adapted subspace of the complete model space is needed to accurately reproduce complete-space observables and the form factor momentum dependence.
