First, there’s a waltz in which the dancers come in and out over the top of one another. This was pioneered by the Vienna Ballet in the 1960s and is widely viewed as one of the most beautiful and effective forms of the dance (for more, see Ballet: The Art and Style).
A waltz performed with just one person comes in two flavors: an individual waltz in which the dancers are on their own, and a group waltz in which the dancers perform as a group. (A group waltz is also known as the choral or communal form.) All of the European styles come in these two flavors and variations—and the difference is especially visible in the United States, where individualists tend to think of individualism as one of the many virtues of contemporary performance, whereas traditionalists tend to think of group dance as one of the main virtues of dance.
In general, individualists tend to have more fun, and more of their waltzes are very emotional and complex. They often work in a more communal setting, at least in the U.S., where they perform together. Group waltzes are also often less emotional, and are performed differently: They are performed less over-the-top, with less movement, and often less in time with the music. Individualists also tend to prefer group dance to individual performance: They may choose to dance with a partner, or even in addition to.

“I had to take a strong, tough view in this case,” New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman says of the case before the Court of Appeals last month about the statute for the first time.
According to The New York Times, one “well-known businessman,” Joe Giuseppe, was convicted under the law last year. The Times quoted attorney Marc G. Elias’ comments to the newspaper:
“As a general policy, Mr. Giuseppe has not been convicted of any crime because of this statute,
