Tia has been pole dancing since 2013. As a trained dancer (jazz, tap, ballet, acro, modern, lyrical, hip hop) and dance teacher of 14+ years, she had adapted to pole dancing quickly, especially being that her first teaching opportunity was at age 16.

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
