Waltz is danced in three step segments. Waltz music is played with a 3/4 Time Signature meaning that there are three (3) beats per measure (bar) with four (4) quarter notes per measure. There are exceptions to the number of steps. With Cantor Rythym there are two steps in three beats usually with the second beat suspended. In a syncopation an "and" is added for an extra foot step such as with the chasse. ( one, two, and, three )
