Swan Lake, a majestic ballet performance, involves the story of a prince who falls in love with a swan. The swan is actually a young girl who had been cursed by an evil sorcerer. The stark white tutu of the ballerina swan is enhanced with a luxurious headpiece of white feathers. The headpiece would be perfect for a ballerina of any age for a stage performance, fancy dress or a ballerina-themed birthday party. White feathers can be found at craft shops.
