"Waltz" is also the name for the kind of music to which one dances the waltz. In this sense, there are waltzes in nearly every kind of European and American folk music as well as in classical or "art" music. Many songs, too, are "in waltz time." The music is written out in 3/4 time and typically played at a rather slow tempo (but see above).
