Royal Ballet First Soloist Beatriz Stix-Brunell gives us a unique insight into this famous company ahead of World Ballet Day, as she describes her typical day at the Royal Opera House, the company’s repertoire and the supportive and warm dancers that have become her dance family as she’s risen through the ranks over the last 8 years.
Beatriz reflects on her journey from New York to Paris to London, training with the American Ballet School, Paris Opera Ballet School and the acclaimed Fabrice Herrault, before being invited to join Christopher Wheeldon’s company Morphoses at just 14 years old.
Listen to Beatriz talk about her very first company class with The Royal Ballet at just 15 years old, what she loves most about dancing, favourite roles, her career highlights both in the studio and on stage, and her advice for future ballerinas.
