The Bal des Parisiennes - the Viennese Ball of Paris® is the perfect blend between the French tradition for elegance for which Paris has always been famous, and the Viennese tradition for dances and balls.

Inspired by the Viennese ceremonies for their splendor, generosity and beauty, the Bal des Parisiennes is re-enacting the utmost French tradition for Balls, mixing up a feast for dancing and a feast for music together with gastronomy and Parisian fashion, in a mythical place, the Grand Hôtel Intercontinental de Paris and its gorgeous architecture...

Waltz, tango, polka, West Coast swing, rock'n'roll, quadrille (Viennese reel)... The 2017 edition will be unique since we will celebrate the Blue Danube that was composed by the king of waltz music Johann Straus II in 1867, and which became famous thanks to its success among the Parisian audience during the International Exhibition of 1867 in Paris !

Come and join to feel for one night your heart beat on a three-time rhythm...
