The Queen of Eathesbury [[DeathByChildBirth dies giving birth]] to her [[MassiveNumberedSiblings twelfth]] daughter, leaving the royal family distraught. As tradition dictates, they’re to spend the next year in mourning. This includes no dancing, which happens to be the princesses favorite past time. To make matters worse, at the time the girls need their father most, the King is pushing them away, leaving them to feel trapped and betrayed.

One night, Azalea, the eldest, discovers a secret passage in their bedroom fireplace that leads to an enchanted pavilion. The owner, who was magically imprisoned within the castle walls hundreds of years ago, known only as [[FauxAffablyEvil The Keeper]], invites them to dance there every night to their hearts content till mourning is over. But the Keeper isn’t doing it out of the goodness of his heart—he wants to be ''free'', and he's determined to make sure Azalea breaks the enchantment holding him there...
