Le Bal de l’X

16th of march 2012, at the Opera Garnier in Paris, I was doing a series about the famous French ball, “Le Bal de l’X”, ball of the Ecole Polytechnique. Young men are called “X”, and their partners from the school are the “Xette”. The ball is strictly organized with a series of protocoles including the visit of the ministry of defense, the traditional opera show, the ritual dance called “Quadrille des lanciers”… A real interesting environement to try to work on the dance, in a strictly statit way.
