When she's not wrangling her three kiddos, Rachele Maier shares her talents and experience as a pole dancer. The proud mom began practicing pole in 1991 and immediately embraced its graceful movements and tummy-toning effects. Today, she owns and operates her own pole-dancing fitness studio?Tangent's Pole & Aerial (formally known as Tangent's Pole Aerobics)?where she draws from her years of practice and certification in fitness training to lead a variety of instructional and fitness-based classes.
Her oldest daughter's artwork speckles the walls of her spacious studio, where she leads students through pole-dancing tricks, transitions, and techniques on ten 12-foot poles. She also conducts classes in theatrical dance, lap dancing, and floor routines along the studio's hardwood floors. During her private instructional parties, she dims the lights and turns on the strobes, making students feel like they're strutting their stuff in a club or the coolest library of all time.
Leichtner Studios earns the trust and patronage of hundreds of Rochester-area businesses and families with 85 years of photographic expertise. Like a royal dynasty or a treasured secret barbecue recipe, the business remains in the hands of its founding family. They continue the tradition of capturing stunning images of graduating students, high-profile executives, and adorable pets.
During traditional and non-fantasy related photo sessions, photographers retouch and retake pictures to perfectly meet clients' satisfaction, and then they place the final product online for easy client access. An in-house custom framing process immortalizes images on canvas, keepsake coffee-table albums, or lustrous metallic Kodak prints.

The talented sound architects might blast eardrums with the high-paced jam "Ecstasy", soulfully bring the crowd "Back to the Earth", and perhaps even shindig on stage with the crowd favorite "Send Me on My Way", which happens to be NASA's choice as "wake-up" music for the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity.
