Happy Kiss Pole Fitness opened in 2014 when Johanna Monserratte moved to Gainesville from Miami and she missed her pole dance community.
Why "Happy Kiss"? Johanna received a birthday card from her 5 year old niece with these words on the back of the card. Simple and signifying happiness and affection.
Johanna began teaching a few of her friends in her spare bedroom. After a few months, she realized that teaching pole dance brought her more joy and fulfillment than any other "job" she ever had. She decided to get serious and completed her AFAA Primary Group Fitness Certification and has been working on various other fitness certifications to provide her students with safe and knowledgable instruction.
Happy Kiss moved to a commercial space in the Summer of 2015. The studio hosts classes, workshops, parties, showcases and more. The studio has 9 X-Poles: six 45mm chrome poles, one anti-allergic stainless steel pole and two 40mm.
