About Saturday Arts and Dance:

The Saturday Arts and Dance programme allows children to participate in a relaxed yet structured environment, taking part in both dance and arts activities throughout the morning.

The art sessions use materials that can often be found at home, offering simple techniques that can easily be replicated at low or no cost.

Our dance sessions introduce children to new dance and movement techniques, incorporating play, props and games, allowing them to learn at their own pace.

We encourage and support children in attendance to participate in both the arts and dance activities.

No previous experience is needed, all abilities welcome however please get in touch if you have any questions or feel it would be helpful to discuss your child's needs with us before they attend. You can also note this on the registration form.

Where possible, sessions will run on Saturdays during term time from 10.30am until 12.30pm.

The classes are split into two age groups, 5-7 years and 8-12 years.

A healthy snack is provided. (If your child has specific dietary needs or allergies please note this on the registration form)

The sessions will involve movement, exploring and art making indoors (and sometimes outdoors, weather permitting!) so please:

  • Wear comfortable clothes and layers that you don’t mind getting messy.
  • Wear footwear that allows you to be active and move.
  • Bring a warm/waterproof outer layer, just in case we make it outdoors!

Important Information:

These sessions are aimed at children living in the local community (areas of Muirhouse, Pilton, Granton and Drylaw).

Registration for the term is FREE and required before attending. Due to high demand, registration does not guarantee a place at every session. Once registered, places are offered to children on a first come, first served basis every session.

Priority will be given to local community members and NEA Members. To find out more about our Membership Scheme and to sign up, visit our website Membership page.
