A classy ball, in the European tradition.

An element of French culture and heritage which has been around for a very long time, the Bal de l'X ("X Ball") welcomes French and foreign dignitaries, high level members of French administration, and famous figures from the worlds of culture and science. It has been a tradition since 1879, the beginning of the 3rd Republic of France.

The Friends of the Alumni of the Polytechnic University, under the patronage of the French President, sponsors this evening, which recalls all the charm and grace of the past two centuries.
