Ballerina Bonnie's dream comes true

BONNIE Quinn-Hennessy has just fulfilled her dreams at the age of nine.

Chosen last month as the winner of Suncorp's Wish-Upon-A-Ballet Star competition, the Urraween girl yesterday danced in the Queensland Ballet's Nutcracker production, performed at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre in Brisbane.

"It was so amazing (and) I just really loved it and seeing all the people," she said.

Bonnie said she did not feel nervous when performing in front of a crowd of hundreds.

"I was all good," she said.

"I did my own curtsey and got a big bouquet of flowers (and) now I have decided I want to be a professional dancer."

Bonnie has already asked her parents, Michael and Debbie, if she can audition for future children's roles in Queensland Ballet productions.

"We were brought to tears by the experience," Debbie said.
