I was aware of Lynn's dance but not Ron's when I came up with the following. As a happy coincidence it's a sort of hybrid of the two in 32 bars.
I originally envisioned the last part of the B2 as an outward-facing CCW circle 1/2 (i.e.: "circle left" to those in the circle) - that's the path the individual lines/4 end up taking on the floor. As the lines/4 approach worked, I never ended up trying an actual outward circle formation (concern re: possible dancer shoulders/elbows strain). -Don BOSTON CREAM PIE – 4 FACE 4 – DON VEINO 20161005 A1 LLF&B Center 4 Star Right 1x A2 Partner Allemande Left 1+1/2x (new) Center 4 Star Right 1x B1 Partner Balance & Swing B2 Current Ring/8 Balance, California Twirl (to facing prior Neighbors) [Take hands in line/4 with Trail Buddies] Left End Gent/Lark Tow Your Line (in an arc, over left shoulder) to face new Line/4 http://veino.com/blog/?p=1401 On Wed, May 29, 2019 at 8:41 PM Winston, Alan P. via Callers < email@example.com> wrote: > My understanding is that Lynn adapted Ron Beeson's dance, Apple Pie > Quadrille, by changing B2 into a can't-fail circle progression from a > "Devil's Backbone" progression. > > I'm going to guess that Nils called it at a dance and somebody > misattributed the dance to him and got the name wrong. > > Here's the notation Ridge Kennedy posted for Apple Pie Quadrille on the > trad-dance-callers list: > > > APPLE PIE QUADRILLE > Ron Beeson (via Ridge Kennedy) > Four Facing Four > > Called by Kathy Anderson at Buffalo gap 2002 > Ask for lively music that's a bit silly to suit the dance. > > A-1 Lines of Four, Forward and Back > (Reminder - this is original direction!)
