A singer is going to sing with her daughters on the 10th anniversary of her Opry(of which popular country music singers are members) induction.

One of her daughters asks: Do we have a dressing room?

Singer: Of course you have a dressing room! (Then they come to a room)

Singer: Welcome into the circle. This is the dressing room everybody uses when they make their Opry Debut. I got to do it. Now y'all do.

(Nashville)

What is the definition for "circle" here? What is it referring to?

Thanks for your help.

    "Circle" is often used to refer to a group of people with a shared interest. I think it has that meaning here but there could be some other explanation. It is unlikely, but not impossible, that it refers to a circular room.
