SJM Creative is a popular and established performing arts hub based in Marchmont St Giles’, Edinburgh. This community-based school provides specialist-run acting, dancing and singing classes for children of all ages from P1 to S6.
Holiday camps run from 10am-3pm Monday to Friday. And each week’s classes are tailored around a theme such as ‘Disney’, ‘90s Pop’ or an emotion. Children develop their skills and confidence by working together towards a live showcase for families and friends.
SJM favours small classes and always maintains a high ratio of staff to students. This means that individual coaching also takes place throughout the day. For younger children, performance classes are interspersed with arts and crafts activities, fun, interactive games and outdoor play.
“Stephen and everyone in the SJM team are amazing. The children love working toward the shows twice a year and other fun activities in between. The summer camps are also great fun and a lot is achieved in only a week.”
“My daughter has never done anything like this before, but really enjoyed the summer camp. I wanted to find something that would be fun, cater to all abilities, and not be too much pressure, and this certainly seemed to fit the bill. All the children put on a great show in an impressively short amount of time!”
