On Saturday, November 26th, 2022, a sparkling light will illuminate the long Parisian winter night: for a dreamy moment, come and discover the wonders of the École Normale Supérieure during its traditional nocturnal Gala! The evening will take place in the historic building at 45 rue d'Ulm, adorned of its most sumptuous attire.

The red carpet will be rolled out for everyone, and it won't be easy to choose among the plethora of activities, artistic events, and gatherings to take part in!

To people of all ages, the ENS dance clubs will offer initiations to waltz, rock or other ballroom dances. Numerous concerts, shows and exhibitions will be spread throughout this extraordinary evening, from the dazzling dance show to the professional jazz concert, without forgetting the DJ mixing set and the unpredictable improvisation cabaret.

La Nuit probably has more facets than there are stars to light it, and will amaze you with countless surprises for the five senses that will transcend this endless winter: a great buffet, a choir, a fanfare, exhibitions, tastings, a show of laser lights,... merry festivities!

In a word, feel comfortable in your outfit!
