Lynn Seymour doesn't dance much anymore. The febrile ballerina for whom Sir Kenneth MacMillan created his Juliet--not to mention the Girl in "The Invitation," Mary Vetsera in "Mayerling" and Anastasia--has, for most practical purposes, hung up her slippers. We aren't likely to encounter her again in the illuminating roles Sir Frederick Ashton invented for her: the Girl in "The Two Pigeons," Natalia Petrovna in "A Month in the Country" and Isadora Duncan.

Lynn Seymour trudges into the lobby of her Pasadena hotel resembling a youngish nanny or a put-upon Dickensian heroine, but hardly the celebrated muse of choreographer Sir Kenneth MacMillan. Oversized spectacles dominate her round cherubic face. She carries a huge leather satchel and wears a heavy green coat with matching floppy felt hat, its wide brim pushed up in the style of Teddy Roosevelt. Her expression is almost flat, though pleasant enough, and she seems sensible.

Plistskaya will dance her signature piece, "The Dying Swan." Seymour will perform a work created for her, Ashton's "Five Brahms Waltzes in the Manner of Isadora Duncan." Schaufuss, with the Australian ballerina Leanne Benjamin, will appear in the pas de deux from "Le Corsaire."

I teach dance to children who have been abused and neglected. They have a very low self-image. Many are anorexic or bulimic. I wish to comment on Lewis Segal's Jan. 9 review, "Nureyev and Friends in Pasadena." I agree with Segal that Nureyev is dancing on his past glories. But I question why he must comment on Lynn Seymour's weight? Her weight, in this case, had little to do with the quality of her performance. We have great dancers who still dance well into their 40s. I believe that there is room for the Lynn Seymours to be accepted as they are, as long as they keep their technical ability and presentation up to professional standards.

No ballet dancer before Rudolf Nureyev--who died Wednesday at 54--was filmed as extensively in performance, but major gaps remain in his video catalogue. For instance, his National Ballet of Canada "Sleeping Beauty" (he danced Florimund) won an Emmy but it now languishes in PBS vaults. Nureyev danced "Petrushka" twice for TV--once with the Paris Opera Ballet, once with the Joffrey--but those performances have never been marketed on home-video in this country.
