LITTLE ballerinas will have a chance to be part of the 2015 Queensland Ballet season, as a second performance of Cinderella has been added in Gladstone after the first show sold out.

One ballet loving child could win an ultimate year of ballet, including a walk-on role in Queensland Ballet's the Nutcracker.

ISuncorp's Wish Upon a Ballet Star competition has been launched in celebration of a new partnership with Queensland Ballet, aiming to make the 'art of ballet' more accessible to regional families.

The major prize delivers the ultimate year of ballet with a walk-on role and four tickets to The Nutcracker, a poster signed by the company dancers, a behind-the-scenes tour of Queensland Ballet's studios, and four family passes to the ballets being presented as part of Queensland Ballet's Season 2015.

Parents and guardians can nominate children aged between three and 12 online via Facebook.com/QldBallet, by uploading a photograph and 25-word entry.

Entries are open until November 22, with 10 finalists drawn on November 25 with the winner announced in December.

Meanwhile, the Queensland Ballet will present two performances of Cinderella at the Gladstone Entertainment Centre next week.

The October 15 show has sold out, so a second performance has been added on October 16 at 7pm.
