The dance is inspired by an illustration of Shakers dancing. The illustration shows a Shaker dance where the men form an inner circle and the women an outer one. They are also moving in opposite directions. The circle (mixer) formation imitates this formation.
The dance is intended to be a beginner friendly dance. A dancer never turns his or her back on his or her partner, so it is always possible to get help.
