Boston Cream Pie – 4 Face 4 – Don Veino 20161005

Type: 4 Facing 4
Status: Public, Proven

Lynn Ackerson’s Coconut Cream Pie is a fave as it’s interesting yet bulletproof with mixed crowds. I’d used it so much, I wrote this dance leveraged from it to have some variation. My unique take is in the B2 here – Lynn’s is Circle/8 Left 1/2x, Balance & California Twirl. I later learned Lynn’s dance was a 32 bar riff on Apple Pie Quadrille (a 40 bar sequence) by Ron Beeson, which I’d not known at the time. Curiously, my dance ended up something of a hybrid between Ron’s and Lynn’s dances, also in a 32 bar length. Great minds and all that… 😉

First called at the Thursday Contras dance at the Concord Scout House on 12/1/2016.
