Excellence in Education Since 1957

The Academy of Dance and Music enjoys more than 50 consecutive years of expertise and growth.  Over 25,000 students have taken dance or music lessons at our Academies - more than any other studio in the area.


Founded in 1957 as the Judyth Parks Academy of Dance Arts, we started as a small studio, and grew to become the largest dance and music school in the Wallingford area. Now known as the Wallingford Academy of Dance and Music, we taught three generations of students.Our Academy offers comprehensive dance programs for all ages:  Diaper Darlings to Adults. We also expand beyond traditional dance classes by offering Voice and Piano lessons, Summer Dance Camps, Fairy Tale Princess Camp, and fantastic Birthday Parties.


We do not believe we are the best because we’re the biggest. Instead, we believe we’re the biggest because families think we are the best. See and hear what our students and parents are saying by viewing our testimonials.


As a parent we realize you have a choice between several different dance and music schools. All studios are not the same. We constantly renovate and improve our facilities, and we provide ongoing training to our staff to ensure we are always providing our students and parents with the best experience possible. We invite you to compare all of the features and options to see why our Academy is chosen more than any other dance or music school. View a studio comparison checklist.
