The latest news about Off The Floor

Featuring footage from the title sequence shoot that our Kickstarter campaign helped fund, it really captures the mission of Jagged and Jessica, the desire to prove to the world that pole dance is art.

Last night Jagged West competed in their first ever team competition...and they WON!
