REVIEWS OF Scariff School of Irish Dance IN Utah

Kellie Capps

Great atmosphere, teachers and students! My daughter has been attending classes here for two years, not only is she learning from some of the best, but she is in a supportive and generally happy environment. I highly recommend Scariff!

The premier Irish dance academy in Utah. Multiple world and nationally ranked dancers under the guidance of world champion and former lead dancer of Riverdance. Really fabulous families and camaraderie!

Weston Daw

A run down place that is a little scary to leave your child at, with a "teacher" (Alan) who doesn't actually do the teaching, just has the older girls "teach", would cancel classes and not let people know, wasn't run professionally, and honestly my girl came away knowing NOTHING about Irish dancing. In the few (probably 5) weeks I had my girl go to the classes, I saw Alan smoking several times just outside the studio, had cigarettes visible in the classroom, had a huge fight with some lady right outside the studio (so unprofessional), and did not show ANY sense of professionalism. I would not recommend this studio to anyone. Which is sad, because it does seem that they have a good dance team, I just don't understand why anyone would initially join up and stay going.

Bonnie Potter

My kids look forward to class each week. They love each new step they learn, and they are doing very well. Alan is so encouraging and easy to work with. I love the experience they are having!


Jo camp, I don’t know who you spoke with but I’m the owner and we never had a conversation. I’ve reported your review to google. However having looked through all of your posted reviews, 99 % appear to be 1 star and negative reviews. So I guess I shouldn’t be surprised to receive a comment from you having a problem with me even though we never spoke. I hope you have a wonderful life. The Scariff school

Hope Dawson

An amazing Irish Dance school with an incredible staff! When I contacted them about their school they were very professional and helpful. I’m over the moon excited to be joining the Scariff School of Irish Dance!

Renee Anderson

My daughter has been an Irish Dancer for 9.5 years. She started at the studio that Alan took over and though she attended a different studio in the middle of her career, she found herself wanting to go back to him. He so graciously took her back and we are ever so grateful to be at that studio again. There is not a better studio in the valley!!

I called to ask some simple questions about the Lehi school and classes and the owner there was extremely rude and put out that I would have the nerve to ask any questions about the class. I asked how many students she has in the beginner class, which is a pretty standard question. It helps me to know if the classes are overcrouded and get a feel for how much attention my child would receive. If you can't answer simple questions without getting upset, then there is NO WAY I am going to want you around my child. Very unprofessional!

Carolyn Emery

I have been attending classes here for a year, and it was the best choice I ever made! The teachers are excellent, I've made lifelong friends, and I am proud of how far my dancing has come in only a year! Even though I take group classes, the teachers give individual attention and advice as needed. My kids also attend and they rave about how much they love it. They are making excellent progress, and we couldn't be happier.

Amy Fernandez

My daughter dances here and she has become so polished and improved for being a beginner in Irish dance. It’s amazing to see her teacher Naomi have so much love and patience as she continues to grow.

Bart McFall

My wife and I are very pleased with the knowledge ant training our daughter is receiving from Alan Scariff. He wants his students to succeed!!! Our daughter has only been in Irish dancing for a little over a year. Her determination to succeed and progress is very evident in the advancements that she has made. Great school for Irish dancing!!! This is where championship caliber dancers are born!! Thank you very much Alan!!

Natalie Swanson

We love the Scariff school and highly recomend it! The quality of instruction is very high and the instructors really get to know the individual students. Everyone is very supportive, helpful and welcoming.

Fabian Martinez

My experience with the Scariff School has been very positive. The teachers are very well trained and they are great with all the children. The owner is a world class dancer and choreographer that toured the world as lead in Lord of the Dance and with his own show Invasion. The Scariff School provides a nurturing environment for all dancers while learning everything from the basics steps of Irish dancing to complex dance choreographies. The Scariff School has a constant record of performing successfully at regional, national and world championships. The Scariff School has produced world class dancers that are currently part of the ensemble of Riverdance, Lord of the Dance and other Irish dancing shows around the globe. If you want the best experience and teachers for your children, I totally recommend The Scariff School or Irish Dance.

Chelsey Jorgensen

My daughters attend the Lehi studio, and we've been beyond happy with the instruction they're receiving. The Lehi studio is brand new and beautiful. Naomi is very talented and knowledgeable, and she's an excellent instructor. Not only did my daughter do very well at her first competition (with no prior dance experience), but my girls truly love Irish dance and practice constantly on their own. Scariff School gives the kids so many opportunities to perform in both small and large settings, and it really helps their confidence and stage presence. I have also had the opportunity to observe Stephen in the Sandy studio. I was blown away by how kind and patient he was with even the youngest children. He's a highly skilled dancer, choreographer, and teacher, and the school's fantastic results demonstrate that. I highly recommend the Scariff School for anyone looking for a great experience for their sons or daughters.

Dustin Swanson

Danielle Klappoth

We love Naomi atbthe Lehi Location! She is so patient with all of our kids, even with a large disparity in skill levels within her beginner class! The adult class on Fridays is so fun as well and SUCH a great work out! I’ve been dreaming of getting into this for years so I’m happy Inget to share a hobby with my daughter! The entire school is incredible and dedicated to helping their dancers succeed at whatever level they want to participate!

Jamie Sanduk

I got to witness Alan Scariff take complete novices of Irish Dance and turn them into performance ready in a matter of weeks. If you are interested in Irish Dance, Scariff School is great for any level experience!

Deedra Hansen Lambert

Our family has been involved with Irish dance in Utah for over 15 years and the Scariff School is head and shoulders above the rest! The school’s director, Stephen Scariff, is an extraordinary teacher, with the knowledge, skills, and experience needed to take your dancer as far as they want to go. He is kind yet firm with his students, and makes class a fun place to be. Mr. Stephen keeps the choreography fresh, and his dancers know they will always have the opportunity to learn the latest, up-to-date steps. If you’re interested in an authentic, high-caliber Irish dance program that produces top-placing dancers in a welcoming, family-like atmosphere, this is the school for you!

Brynn & Will

Such an amazing dance school! I have been an Irish dancer for the past 14 years and I am beyond happy with this school. I have achieved placements in competition I never thought were possible with the help of the teachers from the Scariff School.
