El Fondo Puede Esperar
In 2005 after many struggles to be cast in theater being that she auditioned to be a back up dancer and measures 1.81 m (5 ft 11 1⁄2 in) tall, she found her break in the comedy musical El Fondo Puede Esperar in where she was cast as a simple dancer. The musical starred comedians José María Listorti and Alvaro "Waldo" Navia, former runway model Denise Dumas, tango singer Alberto Bianco and a large cast of dancers directed by choreographer and acrobat Flavio Mendoza. This is where she and José María met each other. Even though she was cast as a back-up dancer, González stood out as a big star in the musical, having little lead roles and being turned into the lead dancer.
Mónica González participated in the reality dance competition, Bailando 2011 with professional dance partner Maximiliano D'Iorio. She was replaced by Argentine model and actress Belén Francese in round 7-10 because of a leg injury that González suffered while practising her pole dance choreography. González was eliminated in the Merengue round by her husband's hosting partner Denise Dumas.
