Do you want to know how I actually broke my tailbone?

An unforgettable salsa lesson that’s sure to have even the most reluctant dancer up on their feet from award-winning actress, writer, and CBC Canada Reads winner, Carmen Aguirre. Drawn from her personal experiences in Canada’s Latinx dance halls, Broken Tailbone is an irresistible story of intimacy, politics, and culture. Accompanied by the powerful beats of DJ Don Pedro, this daring and sexy Toronto premiere will leave you exhilarated with the power of radical resistance and connected to your body, broken tailbone and all. (
