Music, dance and interpretation are intertwined in Dandara Mariana´s career, an actress who was born in Rio de Janeiro (RJ) in 1988. She is an actor's daughter (Romeo Evaristo) with an international consultant (Elizabeth Correa Nahas). Since a child, she showed interest in following the artistic career. During her adolescence, Dandara and her friends set up a cover group for the Spice Girls. She was Melanie Brown. Her father encouraged her so much, that he accompanied the group as an illuminator of the presentations. "I've always been a spontaneous child. As a child, I loved day-care, differently from the others. Art was the natural way that I followed as a way to go beyond this restless side of me", she says.
After graduating in school, her taste for decoration and arts spoke louder. Dandara ended up opting for the architecture course. It didn’t take long and soon realized she had  made the wrong choice. Thanks to her friends Lázaro Ramos and Taís Araújo, she was invited to participate in the program "As Aventuras de Parabólico”, in the Channel Brasil, directed by the actor. There she was certain of what she wanted: performing arts. In 2007 she enrolled in CAL (Casa das Artes de Laranjeiras).  Finally he felt in the right place. In her resumé, Dandara has classics like "Toda Nudez será Castigada”, by Nelson Rodrigues; "No Mundo Nada se Leva”, by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart; and "Antígona”, by Sophocles. Music and dance came back to her life by performing three musicals: "Orfeu da Conceição", "O Bem do Mar - Dorival Caymmi" and "Garrincha" - in the role, she gave life to the singer Elza Soares. In the movies, Dandara joined the cast of "Aparecida – O milagre”, "O concurso," "Um Canditato Honesto” "Através das Sombras" and the still unreleased, "Dona Flor e seus dois maridos”.
In 2017, she debuted as Marilda in "A Força do Querer”. Once again the dance arises in her career. In the soap opera of Glória Perez, she plays a riparian river girl who rocks while dancing “carimbó”, being the best friend of the protagonist Ritinha (lived by Isis Valverde). Even before, she performed also on  TV,  the young  Tamtam in "Malhação" (2012), participated in the series "Na Forma da Lei” and in the soap operas, "Babilônia" (2015) and "A Regra do Jogo" (2015).
Currently she attends Dance at UFRJ. Dandara likes to say that she embraces every kind of artistic expression. "Art is part of my life. I'm constantly allowing myself, opening my senses:  singing, dancing, drawing, writing, reading, watching ..., "she says, adding that her other passion is to travel. She has already been to Australia, Japan, India, England ... Dandara doesn’t stop. She goes far to reach her dreams.
