Niniane Everaert was born on November 24, 1996, in the picturesque Haarlem. At the age of fourteen, Niniane made a daring decision that would change her life: she left the VWO in Haarlem to pursue her dreams at the Theaterhavo/vwo in Rotterdam. Her days were filled with regular lessons, supplemented with a hefty dose of singing, acting, and dancing.

As the icing on the cake, she attended the preparatory course at the Fontys School of Arts during her final exam year. This meant commuting between Haarlem and Rotterdam five days a week and spending her weekends in Tilburg, singing, acting, and dancing. A hectic life, but for Niniane, a dream come true.

After obtaining her high school diploma, Niniane was admitted to the Musical Theater program. For three years, she received singing lessons from Harry Ruijl and immersed herself in various dance styles, including tap dance. In her third year of study, Niniane faced a difficult choice. She was offered a leading role as an internship, but decided to continue her studies. She switched to the Music Theater program, part of the conservatory at the Fontys School of Arts in Tilburg. Here she had the opportunity to develop further as an actress and singer for another three years, under the guidance of Edward Hoepelman.

During her studies, Niniane also discovered her passion for poetry. She joined The Poetry Circle and started writing poems and Spoken Word. Her talent did not go unnoticed. Four of her poems were published in the poetry collection 'Dit had eigenlijk een voorstelling moeten zijn' (This should have been a performance). She was even asked to become one of the eight Spoken Word artists for "Spoken Word Sessions" by broadcaster HUMAN.

In 2020, Niniane graduated with her own performance 'Gustavs Gemüse Kebab'. This story, infused with desires, dreams, and the childlike naivety and insecurity that come with them, was received with much praise. The direction was in the hands of Alexandra van Marken. The Gelderlandfabriek invited her to perform her show again, and the Culemborgse courant praised her as a 'triple threat' and 'incredible talent'. And as the title of her show already indicates, Niniane has a special fondness for the German music theater repertoire.

After graduating, Niniane spent half a year in Enschede, where she participated in a talent development program at the WilminkTheater. With a wide range of interests, she hoped to find an answer to the question: What do I really like the most? Acting? Singing? Writing? Niniane took part in various projects, played the role of Isabelle Fezziwig in Scrooge, sang in concerts, danced in a Christmas revue, and wrote her own show together with the other girls who followed the program. The answer to her question? Everything was equally fantastic!

After her adventure in Enschede, Niniane traveled to Italy. There she made films with filmmakers from all over the world for a month. These films were submitted to various film festivals. Then she went to Germany, where she played a leading role in a German-language cabaret show for half a year. In Germany, she was also accepted into the ensemble of the Broadway musical Young Frankenstein, for which she was allowed to dust off her tap dance shoes again.

From September 2024, Niniane will be seen as Marie de Jong in the new Dutch musical 40-45. Before then, another exciting challenge awaits her at the Salzburger Landestheater, where she will get to perform the role of Hollywood diva Lina Lamont in musical classic "Singin' in the Rain" from December 2023.
