Yo'av Ashriel choreographed the circle dance in 1960. It is done in many international dance sessions also.
Rivka Sturman also choreographed a dance to it about the same time. After teaching it a few times she realized that Yo'av Ashriel's dance was better liked so stopped teaching her version. Four years later she put the same steps to the music K'var Acharei Chatsot and called it Machol Shakeyt.
