In 2016, Tia competed at Ontario’s TGWN Pole Dance Competition in the Erotic Division and won 1st place. Also, in 2016, She was qualified to compete in Orlando’s Dance Filthy Pole Dance Competition by International Pole Stars Michelle Shimmy and Maddie Sparkle. Though she didn’t place, Tia was honored to have been chosen and was elated to have shared the stage with such talent.
By 2017, her popularity was blossoming, especially after competing in the Pole Sport Organization (PSO) Competition in Los Angeles, California. Tia competed in the Professional Division, Level 5 Erotic and earned A silver metal, bringing her in at 2nd place. She was recognized by many dancers and studio owners.

My style of erotic dance combines physical strength, stamina and flexibility. It requires a sense of grace and technique. It promotes mental strength and confidence. I feel the most powerful when I can be sensual/sexy, not for any man, FOR ME. -Tia Jax
Everything Tia taught us in the workshop was everything I needed to hear
Big thank you to Tia Jax for giving me the tools and courage to dance and play from the inside out
I was able to let my heart lead me through movement without letting my brain get in between my body and expression
The energy in the room was so contagious
This was the most beautiful 3 hours, Thank you Tia
