"Swan Lake" - Deanna Seay and Mikhail Ilyin in Details A blog by Hans in General Posted May 30, 2007 Thanks so much for that report, Hans. Ilyin just disappeared from the Miami roster this year, so I'm delighted that he is continuing to dance on this level. He and Seay weren't picked as partners often, if at all, as I recall. It's interesting that they have apparently selected each other as partners in their freelance work. Maybe it's that shared elegance, understatement, and concern for the nuances that brought them together. There is so much more in their work than meets the casual or lazy eye. You really helped me to "see" Seay's Odette/Odile. I can't wait for your thoghts about Ilyin's Siegried.
