Background Statement In Europe, a “culture house” is to be a “house of welcome” – a meeting and working place for networks and initiatives which relate to the cultural sector. So, it was only natural that when Jeremiah Enna and Mona Störling-Enna returned from Europe and founded their unique “house of culture” in 1996, it was given this name: The Culture House. Kansas City’s culture house (TCH) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit arts organization committed to shaping the future of our community and beyond through excellence, education, social engagement and innovative thinking and ideas.  The Culture House has three interconnected components:
  • The Academy offers over art classes and programs in music, dance and theater for Kansas Citians of all ages and levels of achievement.
  • Education and outreach programs include the STAR Program, providing innovative ways to apply arts education, mentoring and spiritual development for youth at risk; the Lecture Series invites guests to address such topics as innovation, racism, and jazz, among many other thought-provoking ideas.
  • Founded by Mona Störling-Enna, the Störling Dance Theater premiered in 1998. A professional dance theater of the highest quality, Störling Dance Theater is comprised of 12 diverse dancers who have trained and danced with some of the world’s most talented and respected artists and dance companies.
Jeremiah Enna received his BFA in Theater from the University of California in Los Angeles (UCLA) where he performed in such productions as Hamlet, Romeo & Juliet, and A Chorus Line. He played “Z” in the television production “Good News/Bad News” and received the Carol Burnett Award for his work in musical theater. 
 
Mona Störling-Enna began her classical dance training at the Ostrobotningen Dance Academy in Kokkola, Finland and went on to train under Jill Miller at Dansivintti in Helsinki. She supplemented her training with the Paris Opera and Finnish National Ballet as she formed her first dance company in Helsinki, Kadosh, together with Titta Tunkkari.
 
Störling-Enna received the Finnish Young Choreographers award in Helsinki for her work In The Storm and toured with Kadosh throughout Europe until she joined Eternia Dance Theater in 1992 as a soloist. 
Impact Statement Accomplishments:
  1. The Academy of the Performing Arts reached 1,200+ unique students.
  2. Störling Dance Theater's "Underground" chosen as one of the Top 10 moments of the Decade in Kansas City by dance and classical music critic, Paul Horsley.  Invited to perform in inaugural year at the Kauffman Center.  Sold out school shows with over 3,400 students attending each year.  Our curriculum guide was chosen by the American Educational Research Association as one of the top examples of Art & Education in the United States.  Underground is now being toured to St. Louis to work with Lindenwood University's commitment to participate in the restoration of the Ferguson community.  
  3. Summer camps drew over 800 children and youth.
  4. The Culture House has long standing partnership with other arts and youth services organization like Kansas Academy of Theatrical Arts, TLC, Friends of Alvin Ailey, Arts Council of Kansas - Catholic Archdiocese, Four Chapter Gallery.  

Current Year:
  1. Storling Dance Theater is preparing to begin touring St. Louis with the production, UNDERGROUND, sharing the story of the Underground Railroad and highlighting it as an inspiration to bring racial reconciliation to the St. Louis community.
  2. Develop STAR Program relationships and programming with TLC center to serve youth at risk.
  3. The Culture House held a very successful INSPIRE FREEDOM CELEBRATION including Storling Dance Theater's UNDERGROUND, the Inspire Freedom Art Exhibit in the Crossroads District, Children's Literature Event together with the downtown KC Library, Gala, and the Foster Care Leader's Luncheon. 
  4. The Culture House merged with Silver Tree Visual Arts to form one of the strongest visual arts programs in the city for children and youth.  Student enrollment increased to over 80 students by the launch of the successful program. 
  5. The Culture House has hired Kristen de la Durantaye as our Director of Community Relations and to assist in the administration of our Propel Campaign. 
  6. The Propel Campaign is launched aimed at increasing our budget by $500,000 in earned and donor income over the next three years.  
Needs Statement
  1. Help Artists Help Themselves:  The Culture House currently has 52 teaching artists in dance, theater, music and art.  One of the objectives in starting The Culture House was to develop an efficient financial model where both educational and professional divisions would share administrative services.  We have consistently been at the top end of this model with raising over 70% of our budget through earned income and community services.  Part of the strategy was to have a facility that would empower us to test our model and prove our commitment to the community for quality and service.  After 20 years the artists and staff at The Culture House have shown responsible and capable to get the job done.  We are now looking to retire our 1.2 million mortgage on our building so that those funds can be redirected into our organization and enable us to serve even more in our community.  
  2. Storling Dance Theater, having developed the second largest and most diverse audience in Kansas City, is in need of stable, committed financial support to maintain and develop our service to the community. 
  3. Build endowment and resources to expand facility.
  4. Fund warehouse space for production equipment, sets, and costume storage to enable program expansion at current location.  We are currently in need of $1,500 a month to fund warehouse space or to have a generous donor provide space.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Chair Statement The Culture House has experienced unprecedented growth since 2005 when we opened the doors to our new facility in Olathe, serving the Kansas City metropolitan area. Built on standards of excellence, the Academy has grown in capacity to train over 1,200 students a year. The STAR Program developed significant relationships with Ozanam and KVC Behavioral Healthcare Center. Störling Dance Theater's "Underground: An American Story" was named one of the Top 10 Performances for the Decade by critic, Paul Horsley.

Our goals now include strategic fund development planning in order to support the innovative ideas that are serving so many Kansas Citians through The Culture House. The Culture House is committed to continuing to make an impact in Kansas City and building our community as a place of innovation and entrepreneurship. Our goals include:  sharing the Störling Dance Theater's Underground with a national audience; increasing the Academy's capacity to train children as well as professionals through the mentoring of our year round commitment to teaching artists; and expanding the STAR Program for youth at risk and Lecture Series to encourage dialogue on contemporary issues through the arts.

An effective board is involved in strategic planning for fund development to ensure future success. We have been fortunate to have a passionate board of directors since our inception and are encouraged by the new talent that is interested in serving the vision of The Culture House.  We are currently developing the Board so strengthen The Culture House and increase our reach into the community. We look forward to building relationships with future supporters who are drawn to being a part of a new and thriving arts organization in Kansas City.
Programs
Description The Culture House's STAR Program is dedicated to giving young people opportunities to realize their purpose and gain discipline through the performing arts, directing the course of their lives towards productivity and success.
 
The STAR Program partners with established social service organizations to supplement the care they are receiving with arts education. Linking their programs with The Culture House artists and teaching artists enables the partner organization to focus on primary concerns while expanding programs. The arts are an ideal platform to rebuild shattered confidence in learning, interpersonal skills, and spiritual motivation.

Population Served Children and Youth (0 - 19 years), ,
Short-Term Success An overwhelmingly consistent development in students who are a part of the STAR program is an enthusiasm for learning and the interest in imagining a better and successful future for themselves. Specifically, this more optimistic attitude has translated to more interest and better grades in their academic classes, along with better relational skills with authority figures.
Long-Term Success
  • Rebuild a sense of confidence that they have the ability to learn
  • Understand that perseverance is essential for success
  • Discover a sense of identity through the self-expression and spiritual reality the arts provides
  • Understand that they are a created, artistic being created for a great purpose
Because of these goals, our clients have an attitude where they strive for excellence and health in all areas of their life. With the discipline that the arts provide, our clients will understand that hard work is essential to success at work and at home. Our long-term goal is for our clients to have healthy, whole lives first at home then in our community.
Program Success Monitored By
  • Teacher evaluations: Include an assessment of students at the beginning of the program, throughout program, and at the end.
  • Para-teacher evaluations: These are staff members of the partner organization who know have a longer history with the students and their specific challenges
Examples of Program Success This comes from a para-teacher from Ozanam School for Boys and Girls. This is a lock up facility for youth who have been arrested for some reason and normally come from violent or highly dysfunctional homes. The teacher offered: "I've watched students who when they first started the class they were locked in a corner ... I then watched as they blossomed ... they were not only able to do what the class required, but carried it over into the (academic) classroom. Before, they didn't want to read aloud, now they're reading and encouraging others to do the same.
Students who weren't bonding with others are now telling me how many best friends they have. They have confidence to dream. They're sharing ambitions and goals.They want to go to college now when they didn't think they would be able to pass their current grade level. It's just an absolutely wonderful beautiful thing and I'm so grateful to God that I had an opportunity to take part and witness the STAR program with our students."

Description The Culture House Academy is a comprehensive performing arts center that is excellence driven in a nurturing environment for every person of every age. The current student body ranges in age from 3 years of age to 65!

Although located in Olathe, Kansas, children and adults from the five county metropolitan area attend classes in the 20,000 square foot facility which features four dance studios, ten music studios and theater classrooms. Our instructors are all gifted, experienced professionals in their art and have a passion for teaching. All students are encouraged to audition for any of several productions in musical theater, dance and music.

The School of Dance is staffed with dance teachers who have trained and performed with some of the country’s most prestigious companies including PHILADANCO, the San Francisco Ballet and the Kansas City Ballet. The School of Theater offers a wide variety of theater arts classes for ages 3 and up, including recreational summer programs, after school classes and pre-professional training. Students in the School of Music have the opportunity to learn piano, guitar, bass, drums, voice, flute and violin with some of Kansas City’s finest musicians.  All music instructors at The Culture House are professional musicians and many are actively engaged in recording and performing careers.

Mentoring on every level is part of The Culture House. The staff mentors the teaching artists who in turn pass on a disciplined but nurturing attitude to the students. They share their skill and wisdom not only in the arts but life experiences.

Short-Term Success Short Term success will be determined by a 15% growth in student enrollment, the continuation of a widely diverse student and family population, and further development of technical excellence among the student body.  The opportunities we have designed for the short term and the level of technical accomplishment our students perform at will indicate our success rate.  The community building aspect of The Culture House is vital, and more staff are participating in community outreach to improve communication, encourage involvement and acknowledgment of volunteers and donors, and prioritizing client awareness of all the opportunities we afford our students.  Finally, our students’ ability to gain acceptance and scholarships into college arts programs is an indicator of our success.  We creating more opportunities to better prepare our students for successful college auditions and applications.
Long-Term Success Training local children and youth from all neighborhoods, economic backgrounds, and situations is our long term goal. A multi-site academy that offers the best training to a wide range of participants that also has the capacity to prepare those called to a vocation in the arts for professional work represents our future. The Culture House Academy of the Performing Arts will also draw all our students together from the region to participate in collaborative projects, breaking down preconceptions and cultural awkwardness, building relationships, and inspiring greater vision and purpose. The Culture House Academy also has a goal to strengthen family and community by giving parents excellent opportunities for their children, opportunities to build lifelong relationships with other families, and the support and encouragement that comes from our service, nurturing and mentoring and commitment to excellence.
Program Success Monitored By Each school year we execute a mid-year student evaluation and a more thorough year end evaluation.  Teachers have a comprehensive assessment tool that helps them uniformly discern a student’s progress and individual strengths and weaknesses.  Teachers work together with Academy Directors to produce recommendations for each student that not only take into consideration a student’s talent and technical abilities, but also their personality and individual learning style.  The Culture House students are recognized for being highly motivated and well placed to optimally succeed in their field of interest.  We intend that their success at The Culture House will carry over into other areas of their life including not only academics, but more confidence and success in their family and social relationships. 
Examples of Program Success The Academy grew from 110 students in 2004 to 450 in 2005 and 700 in 2006. Enrollment is currently at the 750-800 mark.  In addition, between 750-1,500 students participate in our Summer Camp and Family Musical Theater Program.  One of the reasons for our success is that we are a skill driven educational institution, and our teaching artists tailor their instruction to connect with each individual student at their unique phase of development.  This includes not only their talents in a given area, but maturity level, learning style, confidence and motivational levels.  One story of success that of a teenage girl who came to study dance at the Academy.  The staff was told she had a learning disorder.  But, over the course of two years we observed a gifted student with an extremely high level of  intelligence.  She had a passion for dance, but this was not a field that the family practically considered for her vocation.  Upon graduation, I spent time with the family, informed them of our observation and that we did not believe she had a learning disorder.  She went to college, got straight A’s, changed her major to dance, and received the Creativity and Innovation Award every year.  The Dean of the School of Dance contacted me saying, ‘We want more just like her!’
CEO Comments The landmark study commissioned by the U.S. Department of Education, Champions of Change: The Impact of the Arts on Learning, found that “through engagement with the arts young people can better begin lifelong journeys of developing their capabilities and contributing to the world around them.” Then Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan described this as our “economy of ideas.” The arts develop imaginative, flexible and tough-minded thinking. It is a power like no other.

The Culture House is not only providing exceptional, engaging education in the arts, we are also preparing our young people to be leaders in the 21st century, whether they pursue careers in the arts, become scholars or successful parents and compassionate members of the communities in which they live and work.

Executive Director Mr. Jeremiah Enna
Term Start Mar 1996
Experience Jeremiah Enna received his BFA in Theater from the University of California in Los Angeles (UCLA) where he performed in such productions as Hamlet, Romeo & Juliet, and A Chorus Line. He played “Z” in the television production “Good News/Bad News” and received the Carol Burnett Award for his work in musical theater.

Vibeke Muasya (Caane Award winning film maker) heard about Mr. Enna while she and her dance theater company were touring in Paris and called him to join their artist community. He moved to Sweden and became dance soloist and music composer for the company. Mr. Enna became assistant director for Eternia Dans Theater and eventually artistic director in 1994 while  Muasya was on sabbatical. His composition Sacrifice, based on the painting “White Crucifixion” by Marc Chagall, was sponsored by the Swedish National Board of Culture and received accolades from the French Institute.
 
Jeremiah originated the lead character in “We Want To Live!”, a production exploring the Jewish identity that toured throughout Europe for 5 years. “We Want To Live!” was sponsored by the Swedish government to tour Scandinavia to combat an uprising of Neo-Nazism in the early 90’s. They were especially thankful for the attention that was given to the production by survivors of the Holocaust whom they were fortunate to perform for on many occasions. The group was invited by then Israeli Ambassador, Moshe Yeagar to tour Israel with the production. Jeremiah traveled to Israel meeting with leaders in the Knesset, Kibutzes, and at the Holocaust Memorial to organize the tour. The group was honored by the Holocaust Museum as they lifted their ban on dancing on location in order to enable “We Want To Live!” to be presented.

CEO Comments
The Culture House was established with a business plan that sought to earn 60+% of its annual budget to ensure a more stable, growing organization. We have reached that goal every year and have surpassed some years. Now we are in place to expand our budget in order to fully fund our programs and expand our services into the community. After three years of efforts using our current staff, we have concluded that what is needed is an additional staff member in order for us to maintain proper communication with our growing constituency of clients and donors. Our experience is that when we have the resources to approach development, we succeed.
 
Our challenge is that we don't have enough staff to maintain the donor and client relations we currently have let alone access a growing list of new relationships. So, we have hired a Director of Community Relations in order to actualize all the potential that we see available to us.
 
Another challenge we face is the lack of theater space in Kansas City to present our work whether it be professional or youth production. The development of our Red Studio Theater is an initial step towards addressing this problem, but we are looking to build a proper theater to serve the community in the coming years. We are still in need of approximately $60,000 to finish the theater space.
 
Consistent funding and sponsorship is also an issue that needs addressing. Our programs consistently impress and tangibly improve the lives of our community. We are looking to maximize our work efficiency by establishing more stable funding relationships with local businesses for our annual productions.

Organization Comments
The Culture House earns over 65% of the annual budget through tuition and ticket income. Our focus during the first decade of our organization has been on establishing high quality programs and educational opportunities for the Kansas City community.  During our third decade we will be focused on cultivating a thriving donor base and solid endowment to carry The Culture House and its success into the future.  One of our challenges is that we have built a high quality organization in a relatively short time, and now we need to do a more effective job communicating who we are to the Kansas City community.  We also are developing a strategic plan to build philanthropic support to achieve organizational goals, including  increasing funding from contributed sources and building staff in order to mature into a solid arts institution that will continue to enhance Kansas City's cultural and community landscape.
We completed our first formal audit for the 2012-13 fiscal year with Keller-Owens CPA who has been our CPA firm since 2004.
