As from 2006, “Bailando por un Sueño” (which means “Dancing to make your Dream Happen”) has become a part of the popular culture in argentine entertainment. It is a television program, that, just as its name suggests, consists on a competition in which the contestants display their impressive artistic dance choreographies to get the audience’s approval, and following it, the approval of the whole country.
Tango has certainly received several moments of limelight along the 15 years in which this reality show has existed. It could not have been any other way, considering that this country has given birth, has produced and has been an example of the most important tango pieces in history.
It is in this context that Gisela Bernal’s distinguished bearing and exquisite talent become known, in the year 2007. She gave gradually gave life, body, a face and movement to this show’s milonga.
Gisela made her debut as a dancer and as a choreographer in “Bailando por un Sueño” in the same year, reason for which she was very much involved with the show. So much so, that she was demanded to return to the show in the 2008 and 2010 seasons.
However, the moment in which she stood out the most was in the show’s 10th season in 2015, when she was invited to participate as a leading dancer together with her dance partner Nicolás Villalba. She managed to reach the contest’s semi-finals.
