Can you recommend free/very cheap software for a Mac that allows me to slow down recorded music (mp3s) on the fly?

I teach folk dance to recorded music, and often the tracks are too fast for our dancers to keep up with. When I can anticipate this, I use Audacity to slow down the tempo without altering pitch, and save the file as a new track -- but I don't always anticipate correctly, and even when I do, I'm not always right about how slow to make it. One of my fellow teachers, who is on a PC, has software that can slow any track down -- she puts her playlist for the evening into this application, and it has a slider to adjust tempo. I'm looking for something similar, $10 or less, for Macs (this is a volunteer gig that I already spend too much money on!).
I'm not a professional at this and apparently suck at Googling without the right vocabulary, so I apologize for the lack of appropriate vocabulary and if I missed an obvious solution.
