* This video shows the "Circle Cha-Cha York Mixer" a 56 count mixer, usually done to the 124 BPM song "Anna Dai Capelli Rossi" by La Compagnia Dei Sanremini. The original choreographer is unknown. Supposedly the dance originated in New York City, then was brought to Reading PA, and then to the York-Harrisburg PA area circa 1982. We think the written steps were maybe first "posted" by the York, PA USA Dance Chapter #3008.
