Dancing to the Beat of Shalom in Kansas City

A scene from “Underground”

In the early 1990s Jeremiah Enna and Mona Störling-Enna moved to Kansas City to join the arts scene. Twenty years later they now have over 800 students in their schools of dance and theater. They also launched The Culture House and Störling Dance Theater, which have come up with some impressive productions. Dismayed by the culture wars, the Ennas wrote Underground, according to Christianity Today, in order to bring about racial reconciliation in urban Kansas City. Arts critic Paul Horsley of the Kansas City Star named Underground one of the city’s Top 10 performances of the decade, calling it “one of the most vivid, heartfelt and theatrically astute pieces of dance theater ever to grace a Kansas City stage.” Read more about this fascinating evangelical story here.
