Mariana Paraizo


Born in São Paulo, Brazil, Mariana started to dance from a very early age. At the age of fourteen she moved to Europe which changed the direction of her dance career where her love for contemporary dance was born. In 2007 she started her degree in dance at the Escola Superior de Dança (Superior School of Dance) in Lisbon.

Her big break was performing in the televison show So You Think You Can Dance in Portugal in 2010 and was highly successful reaching 4th place in the shows final. 

Mariana has worked with many famous choreographers and is a fantastic practitioner in her own right - we welcome her here to Mad Dance House!
