Brio's story

Gilbert Russell started Brio in Halifax almost thirty years ago to answer complaints about the poor service that his fellow dancers were receiving from the local dancewear store.

From a tiny five foot by ten foot space sublet from a second hand clothing shop, Gilbert set out to provide local dancers with the great customer service they deserved. Within less than a year the store had grown to two full sized stores in Halifax. Within another year we had opened a store in Ottawa.

From the beginning we were committed to listening to our customers. This attention to customers needs led to expanding our selection into swimwear and later into bras. By listening to our customers and working closely with designers and manufacturers we have developed a great body of knowledge in all aspects of the products we sell.

All Brio staff spend countless hours absorbing this knowledge and developing their expertise in dancewear, swimwear and bras. The know the product, they know fit and they know flattery.

So please drop by soon and let us help you find the perfectly fitting dance shoe, a flattering swimsuit or a luxurious bra that gives you the support you need.
