Nicky Cruz had more than 16 knifings to his name, along with the credit of leading the Mau Maus, one of New York’s most vicious gangs. And Nicky don’t want this skinny preacher taking over Nicky’s turf.
“Nicky has a plan. If that preacher sticks around, he’s gonna bleed…he’s gonna bleed long and slow.”

Happy back-to-school week, Olathe! Remember to make the arts an important part of your educational experience this year!
“A student making music experiences the “simultaneous engagement of senses, muscles, and intellect. Brain scans taken during musical performances show that virtually the entire cerebral cortex is active while musicians are playing.” (Learning and the Arts: Crossing Boundaries, 2000, p. 14)
“Dramatic play, rhyming games, and songs are some of the language-rich activities that build pre-reading skills.” (Young Children and the Arts: Making Creative Connection, 1998, p. 1)
“Preschoolers who were given music keyboard lessons improved their spatial-temporal reasoning…used for understanding relationships between objects such as calculating a proportion or playing chess.” (Education Leadership, November, 1998, p. 38)
“Creative activity is also a source of joy and wonder, while it bids its students to touch, taste, hear, and see the world. Children are powerfully affected by storytelling, music, dance, and the visual arts. They often construct their understanding of the world around musical games, imaginative dramas and drawing.” (Hamblen, Karen A., Theories and Research That Support Art Instruction for Instrumental Outcomes, 1993)
“Regular, frequent instruction in drama and sign language created higher scores in language development for Head Start students than for a control group.” (Young Children and the Arts: Making Creative Connections, 1998, p. 1)
“Listening to music for just an hour a day changes brain organization…EEG results showed greater brain coherence and more time spent in the alpha state.” (Malyarenko, et al., 1996)

The date has changed for our Worship Dance Workshop! It is now July 23-27 from 7-9 pm. Read the instructor’s class description below and call 913.397.7071 today to register.
WORSHIP WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION - Instructor, Kirsten Kawase
True worship engages the heart, mind, and body; however, finding a fitting expression for our physical bodies’ desire for expression is often difficult. This workshop develops dancing to physically engagement in worship.
Students will learn how to:
· interpret music into movement,
· improvise with a group,
· and lead others in worship with their dancing.
This workshop is recommended for dancers of all levels of experience interested in improvisation and worship. Its techniques and exercises can further be used for personal bible studies and choreographing.
· Personal Bible
· Water bottle
· Workout clothing*
*Sweats and simple shirt are fine. No specific dance clothing is required, but ladies should still ensure they are modestly covered.
The songs, “Amazing Grace,” “Come Thou Fount,” “Revive Us Again,” and “It Is Well” have inspired and comforted millions. These are hymns born in the real world, written by flawed and broken humans who sought and found a real God. Come hear their stories.
Beginning this month, Leslie Smith will be offering piano and clarinet lessons on Saturday mornings and Trevor Sheafer will teach guitar on Saturday afternoons!
To register or set up a lesson consultation, call 913-397-7071.
Just a few snapshots of studio life! Enjoy!

What Students Are Saying"Greenleaf is, in my opinion, the best drama, dance, and music studio there is. Greenleaf's dedication to seeking out each artist's potential, their sense of community, and love for God and expertise in the arts makes it the most unique and exciting place you'll ever find. There's a whole list of things I would have never done if it weren't for this wonderful place."Marisa Huther Dorsett
