Lifting up heels during prayer?

I’m currently working at a Jewish summer camp with kids from a range of Jewish backgrounds. During Shabbat morning service, several of them rose up on their toes during Avot V’Imahot as each name was said.

At lunch afterwards, some of the camp leaders were discussing how they really don’t want the kids to do that and may try to explain it to the kids next week during Shabbat. I asked what was wrong with it, and was told it was “idol worship” because you do the same thing during Kedusha.

I’ve never heard this before; is anyone familiar with this argument?
