Garreg Mach Monastery is said to have been completed during the Ethereal Moon.

Why, 995 years ago as a matter of fact. That's rather a long time ago, don't you think?

Hanneman

Every year, a ball is held to celebrate the founding. And every one hundred years, a very special celebration takes place.

Hanneman

It's a grand festival, involving all of Garreg Mach. It is thrilling to read of past festivals, and I'm rather excited to experience one for myself.

Once in a lifetime, eh? The next one, in five years, will mark a millennium. Should be quite an event. Do you imagine you'll still be here teaching then?

Hah! The "full moon" thing was an embellishment, I admit. But you can forgive a man for waxing poetic, can't you? Anyway...

We soon fell in love and tied the knot. Now we have a daughter, who's as bright and beautiful as a sunny morning.

So, whenever I see people dancing, I think of my wife, and my heart does a little waltz.

Before the ball, it is customary that we host a competition of dance known as the White Heron Cup. The students are quite fond of this tradition.

Each house must select a representative to compete. Their dance shall be judged by its beauty, grace, and technique.

The student who is deemed the winner will be given the opportunity to train as a dancer, should they so please.

It is a very precious thing, the gift of dance. I hope that you and your students will choose to participate.
