Ashley living a fairytale



HANS Christian Andersen's tale of 'The Brave Tin Soldier' is a story which has touched the hearts of generations of children.

Now 14-year-old Ashley Molloy has won the leading female role in the Gold Coast Dance Company's next production of the classic fairytale.

The Clarenza student will dance in the production on May 14 and 15.

Ashley was also selected as one of the two leading swans in excerpts from Swan Lake which will also be performed by the dance company.

The production's artistic director, Fiona Munroe, said she was impressed with Ashley's commitment.

"Ashley is a dedicated dancer who has her dreams set on a dance career and we are glad to help her work towards this dream."

Last year Ashley was selected as a soloist at the dance company in a production of 'The Nutcracker Suite'.
