"What's A 'HeadWig'?" - - "Do I Need to Wear a 'HeadWig'?"
A 'HeadWig' is anything that goes on your head. It can be as simple as your favorite sports team cap, a mask, or a headpiece as ornate, original and creative as you can conceive. A 'HeadWig' can be found, made, adapted or. . . . . . .? You needn't feel compelled to create or wear a 'HeadWig.' However, it could be fun ;-)

Please send us your 'HeadWig' photo to: Contact@HedwigDances.com.
We'd love to post it on our social media channels and our website.
