It is a simplified version of Apple PIe Quadrille by Ron Beeson which can be seen at http://www.library.unh.edu/special/forms/rpdlw/syllabus2008.pdf
Coconut Cream Pie is the same as Apple Pie Quadrille in the A1-B1. Apple Pie quadrille is a 5-part dance, and I found the progression tricky when there were new dancers in the hall. Also, not all bands have a 5-part tune. So far, I've never seen Coconut Cream Pie fall apart, even with a large percentage of new dancers. You can have 5 or 6 or 3 people in the stars, and as long as they get  back to where they started, it's OK.

Hi everyone,

I had the pleasure of calling Lynn Ackerson's 4x4 "Coconut Cream Pie" for the first time last night. It was, forgive me, easy as pie for everyone to get - which I suppose was her reason for writing it as it's a simplified version of Apple Pie Quadrille. (It was also perfect for an American 4th of July weekend dance, featuring both stars and stripes [long lines]. Ha.)


Do you have other favorite, not too difficult, 4-facing-4 dances you're willing to share? 

 
Tina
