Vacation Recap Pt. 2 – Lodging

So I have about 300+ images from our trip to San Francisco…and I feel a bit overwhelmed when I think about blogging about my trip. I really want to share every detail but I guess it would be a bit lengthy. However, it is my blog…so I guess it doesn’t matter? :) Well, I care a lot about my readers and I definitely don’t want to bore you guys, so I’ll post in segments!

Anyway, as I mentioned in my previous post, we were invited to teach Culture Shock Oakland and provide them with choreography for their new set. Since we had paid vacation days saved up, we decided to make it a week stay to enjoy the bay! We decided to leave right after work wednesday night. We had to pick up our friend Jeremy in Long Beach along the way…so we didn’t actually head out for San Francisco until 11:30pm.


It was a nice, long, 7 hour drive. WOW!

We finally arrived…mmmm….IHOP

We stayed at the Crowne Plaza in Foster City. Why Foster City? I don’t know…but the drive to everywhere we went wasn’t too bad.

To be Continued…

Stay tuned for Pt. 3 – Shopping in The Bay! and Pt. 4 – Nightlife!


Vacation Recap Pt 1.

Some of you may be wondering why we chose San Francisco as our vacation destination. The main reason was because we were invited to teach Culture Shock Oakland a routine for their set. Since we had vacation days, we figured it’d be a great opportunity to teach a class and enjoy San Francisco while were there. They had offered to provide plane tickets…but I haven’t flown before and therefore have somewhat of an anxiety (I don’t want to call it “fear”) towards taking an airplane. So they got us a nice rental and enough for gas :) Since we got a rental, we figured it’d be a great roadtrip and so we invited 2 of our friends to join us. And what better two people than our good buddies Tribal and Jeremy!

Lol…no, they’re not a couple.

Anyway, for this post I thought I’d share video of our choreography. We only had to teach them thursday night for 2 hours, so we still had the whole week to vacation, have fun, and relax!

This first piece was choreographed by both Pooh and I. Here’s one of just me running it with the group. Can you see me? I’m in the one in the front wearing the black jacket.

This next piece was choreographed by me. It’s funny because I made the whole routine in my head during our drive up to San Francisco from San Diego. We were pretty worried because I’ve never actually physically danced the routine or seen it with mirrors until we got to the studio and taught them.

Here’s me running part of the piece with them.

And Pooh and I running part of the piece with them as well.

I had other footage but they didn’t turn out quite as well – bad angles and people blocking the mirrors etc. Anyway, that’s a little snippet of what we did in San Francisco. There’s more to come!

If you’re really impatient. You can check out my all of the pics from our vacation in my Flickr Collection here. There’s a whole lot of pics!
