A group of bridesmaids surrounds the bride for a postceremony photo. As the flashbulb goes off, the photographer, Andy Leithner, is smiling along with them. This is just one of the more than 1,500 weddings he has shot in his 26-year career, a kind of longevity attributed to his enthusiasm for capturing his subjects' energy. Having developed a photojournalistic, bride-focused approach to the big day has made him a seven-time winner of Oklahoma State's Best Custom Wedding Album award. Since training at both the Texas School of Photography and the Delta School of Photography, the award-winning portrait photographer has also documented innumerable graduations, births, and clouds shaped like Ansel Adams. In addition to owning Andy's Fine Portraits, he has been invited to serve as a visiting photography lecturer for the Professional Photographers of America and at Tulsa Junior College.

About 90% of Purple Glaze Studio’s ceramics and craft supplies come from local sources, reflecting a dedication to the community that undergirds the studio’s resolve to never become a franchise. Instead, the Oklahoma-oriented Purple Glaze Studio welcomes neighbors inside to paint hundreds of ceramic bowls, frames, and figurines created in the Tulsa area. Stencils, sponges, and stamps assist crafters as they paint their projects, and an idea center helps jumpstart flagging imaginations. The studio also invites guests to assemble bright tiles and stones into mosaics—a perfect activity for a girls’ night, a birthday party, or discovering that you’re actually colorblind.

While teaching jazz dance in the 1960s, Judi Sheppard Missett decided to step away from tradition by offering an experimental class that allowed her students to simply dance without the judgment of mirrors or the constraints of rigid technique. In these sessions, she began infusing popular dance moves with specific fitness workouts to forge a distinctive blend of cardio exercise, strength training, and dance instruction. Little did she know that this “just for fun” class was the prototype for what would become the national fitness sensation known as Jazzercise. Today, Jazzercise takes its aerobic techniques from a variety of sources that include jazz dance, hip-hop, resistance training, Pilates, yoga, and kickboxing. The class formats, which vary according to different toning goals, are just as diverse as the program's move set. Two-time Dancing with the Stars champion Cheryl Burke is a big fan of the improvisational routines, although her advanced skills aren't needed to get the most out of classes. Instructors cultivate a noncompetitive atmosphere where all exercisers—with the exception of those marked as cursed by jazz-hand palm readers—are welcome regardless of age, build, or fitness background.

Kaleidoscope Children's Museum transports kids into a pint-size world, touting 13,000 square feet of hands-on exhibits that ignite the imagination. Wee ones rule in Kid's City, a microcosm of society with a café, grocery store, barbershop, doctor's office, post office, and a miniature jail for locking up pinky-swear violators. Two rock walls soar 20 and 22 feet into the air, beckoning aspiring spider monkeys to scale their faces, and a multilevel play structure with two slides entertains playground explorers. Tykes can rock out on stage or solve a who-dun-it in Kaleidoscope's detective mystery lab. Snoezellen, a multisensory black-light room, appeals to little ones' five senses with glow-in-the dark toys, Van de Graaff static-electricity spheres, and oxygen-flavored air.
