ASHLEIGH is a moving portrait of one woman’s struggle to pursue her life-long passion of becoming a dancer. Born with cerebral palsy, and told as a child that she would never be able to study or work in the mainstream, Ashleigh refused to take ‘no’ for an answer and today is an inspiration to others. Shot at Dance City, we are so proud to be a part of Ashleigh’s journey.
