Johanna Monserratte began her pole journey in 2010 when one of her friends convinced her to join a class in Miami, FL. She became hooked(literally) and hasn't stopped this addictive workout ever since.

After moving to Gainesville, Johanna missed her pole community and started teaching her friends in her spare bedroom in 2014. She decided THIS was her passion all along and planned to make it her career. In 2015, Happy Kiss moved into a commercial space and it has been like living a dream ever since.

Safety and continued education is a top priority for Johanna. She is always striving to provide her students with quality pole dance and fitness classes.
