Mari Dudash was a guest dancer at Candy Apple's Dance Center and an official dancer at BDA.

In Dance Moms

  • She was invited to join the Apple Cores in An Apple a Day Keeps Abby Away because of her tilts and extensions. She does not show up to the second day of practice due to being sick, which causes the moms and Cathy to doubt her loyalty to the new team. The next day, she is back with the group and Anthony says that she's working hard, but Cathy is still a little doubtful. At the competition, the group places first.
  • In No Room for Rotten Apples, she is placed second from the bottom on the newly unveiled Apple Tree. She is given a solo along with Jalen, and they are told whichever one of them wins will be able to stay on the team. She ends up placing 8th, and Jalen places 9th. Cathy concludes that she can't make a decision, that the results were too close.
  • In Clash of the Dance Moms, she is brought back for the new team along with Hadley and Nicaya. She is assigned the role of Spring in their group dance "The Four Seasons". Cathy also brings in Lucas Triana and a girl named Brooke Shore. The group dance places 3rd.
  • In the fifth season finale, Showdown in Pittsburgh, Part 1 and Part 2, Mari appears as part of Jeanette Cota's team.
