American dancer Beatriz Stix-Brunell is a Soloist with The Royal Ballet. She joined the Company as an Artist in 2010 and was promoted to Soloist in 2012. She made her Principal debut while still an Artist, dancing the title role in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland in 2010.

Stix-Brunell grew up in New York City and began her training aged seven at the School of American Ballet. Aged 12 she joined the Paris Opéra Ballet School and on returning to New York learnt privately with Fabrice Herrault. Aged 14 she was invited by Christopher Wheeldon to join his company Morphoses; performances with Morphoses included Polyhymnia’s variation (Apollo) and roles in Wheeldon’s There Where She Loved, Fool’s Paradise and Polyphonia. She also created roles in Commedia and a Wheeldon/Martha Wainwright collaboration.

Stix-Brunell joined The Royal Ballet when she was 17. Her repertory since has included Alice, Princess Rose (The Prince of the Pagodas), Perdita (The Winter's Tale), Youngest Sister (Las hermanas) and Lilacy Fairy, Fairy of the Enchanted Garden and Florestan’s Sister (The Sleeping Beauty) and roles in DGV:Danse à grande vitesse, Polyphonia, Requiem, Ballo della regina and La Sylphide. She created the role of Young Shepherdess (The Winter's Tale) and a Principal role in ‘Trespass’ (Metamorphosis: Titian 2012), and was nominated for the 2012 Critics’ Circle Award for Outstanding Female Performance (Classical).
