Aleida made her professional acting debut in 2005 by joining the top-tier company La Fura dels Baus - a Catalan theatrical group that performs urban theater in unusual settings.

They use a mix of choreography, acrobatic feats in the vein of Cirque du Soleil, along with opera and other elements to break the wall that often exists between the actors and their audience.

She also worked at the Liceu, the Opera Theater of Barcelona, for two consecutive seasons and was part of the ensemble in several of their operas.

Her first on-screen appearance was a guest spot on the Spanish TV show 13 anys I un dia (English: 13 Years and a Day) in 2009.
