Camps | Step It Up Dance

holiday camps and workshops

Edinburgh parents, we understand that filling up the holidays can be challenging, so we run week-long holiday camps during school holidays for kids in Primary 1 - 7 as well as shorter active camps & workshops for the Under 5's. Step It Up Dance camps run EVERY school holiday period (Summer, October, February and Easter) as well as one-off workshops throughout the year and at Christmas. Our holiday camps in Edinburgh are jam packed with fun activities to fill up your family's free time and support you to be worry-free while you work ... and they always book up fast!  All of the holiday camps and workshops listed below are open for booking NOW!


Our holiday camps are open from 8.30am - 4.30pm. Our core activity hours are 9.30am - 3.30pm and outwith these hours we offer relaxed activities to help children ease into/ wind down at the end of each day.

Our P1-7 holiday camps in Edinburgh focus on making sure your child has tons of fun and makes lots of new friends, developing confidence and social skills throughout the week. Children work collaboratively to prepare a routine that they will take pride in performing for you at 4pm on the final day of camp (Friday). One day during each holiday camp we will take our campers on a trip to Inverleith Park and on other days there are workshops in specific styles and exciting non-dance activities.

Throughout the week we will be including plenty of choices for your children. Choice is so important in order to allow your children to explore their individuality and develop their confidence so we will be encouraging every child to have input and choice around what they would like to do as much as possible during every day at camp! The children will bring this to life in everything they do by having input into which games to play, which moves to learn, which specific arts & crafts activities to do at the relevant times. 

On Friday we host our 'Finale Friday' - a great fun party to round off the week before the final performance and pick up.

Our full day holiday camps run from Monday to Friday each week and are suitable for children currently in P1 - 7. We have single day options, or book the full week and get five days of childcare for the price of four.


We don't want your littlest ones to miss out, so we regularly run short day camps for part weeks. Each day involves lots of dance, team games, creative tasks and active fun so expect to see lots of smiling faces at pick-up time (and lots of early bedtimes!) Each camp for children aged 3 - 5 runs from Tuesday - Thursday 10am - 1pm each day and is organised and staffed by members of the SIUD team (all members of the PVG Scheme, First Aid qualified and trained to work with young children). Cost per child is £45 for the full week (3 days) or £16 per day.

The idea behind our Christmas Camps is to allow you to drop your children off for a fantastic, fun-filled day with us and at the same time allow you to gain a few precious hours in the run up to Christmas. 

Each Christmas Camp is jam-packed with festive fun, from making Christmas cards, playing festive games (all with a dance twist of course!), enjoying arts & crafts activities including from making decorations all against an exciting festive soundtrack! 

BUT THERE'S MORE! This year we've invited the animals along to join us! Cool Creatures will be bringing along some furry (& non-furry) favourites such as meerkat, rabbit, arctic fox and pygmy hedgehog (specific animals need to be substituted on the day in case of illness).

Here at SIUD we're already excited about Christmas coming and by the end of this workshop, you and your children will be too! 



Spaces always fill up fast so book ASAP to secure your child in for tons of fun, or please don't hesitate to contact us via the form below for further info.
