Bailando por un Sueño is a segment inside the Argentine television program Showmatch, broadcast on El Trece. On the contest, a non-celebrity "dreamer" who in addition must be an amateur dancer, is accompanied by a celebrity in dance routines in which they have to demonstrate their skills in various styles such as: Tango, Chacarera, Salsa, Merengue, Flamenco, Rock and roll, Disco, Hip-Hop, Axé, Charleston and most recently Pole dance, Strip dance and Adagio. The couples are awarded points by a panel of judges, who give scores from 1 to 10, and those with the fewer points have to face the public vote to continue in the program. As of June 2012, the show is in its eighth season and the panel of judges continues to include icons of the Argentine entertainment scene like: Carmen Barbieri, Flavio Mendoza, Moria Casán, Anibal Pachano, Antonio Gasalla and Marcelo Polino. Showmatch, hosted by Marcelo Tinelli, also featured another contest of similar characteristics: Singing for a dream or Cantando por un sueño. Since 2011, the segment is an independent TV show. From the second season onwards, and unlike the international versions, Bailando por un Sueño has taken a controversial turn due to the constant bickering that often escalates to verbal bashing and personal attacks between the celebrities and the judges. This could be behind the high ratings of the show.
