The Original Irish Dance School! ROI opened in January of 1997 to a town that wasn’t quite sure what Irish dance was all about. Our Teacher & Director Debbie Bristol TCRG founded the Rhythm of Ireland and began teaching the 1st ever Irish dance class in the Southeastern Virginia/Hampton Roads location.

Since that time, Mrs. Bristol has trained numerous champion dancers including solo Oireachtas Champions, Ceili Champions, North American Championship medalists and World Championship medalists!

Mrs. Bristol has personally trained these dancers. With the help of 4 time World Champion, Anthony Fallon TCRG, ROI is the most successful Irish dance school in Southeastern Virginia.

With a proven skilled and successful teacher of 26 years, ROI is known as a boutique dance school with children getting individualized attention in every class. We celebrate all their success both big or small.

We welcome beginners through champion dancers to our School! Join our Irish dancers and their families and enter ROI’s exciting world of Irish Dance!
