The Scariff School of Irish Dance was established in Utah in 2011 by brothers Stephen and Alan Scariff, from Galway, Ireland. The school is home to over 150 dancers. Our Florida studio has been open since 2007.

Stephen trained at the O’Flaherty Academy of Irish Dance in Galway, winning both national and international competitions. In 1998, Stephen was approached to dance in the internationally-acclaimed Lord of the Dance, later becoming “the good lord.” He later co-produced the show Irish Dance Invasion. In 2003, he established a dancing school in Vienna, Austria. Soon thereafter he opened branches in the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Poland. He moved to the United States in 2007, when he established the Scariff School of Irish Dance in Tampa, Florida. Stephen is now the Director of the Scariff School of Irish Dance, Utah.
