Karen Muller-Elite & Positive Mindset/Performance Coach

specialising with dancers


TESTIMONIAL:" She has enormous respect for you. You have pushed her hard to achieve your high expectations and, therefore, she has improved as a dancer and performer. Furthermore, you have taken the time to understand her personality and showed great sensitivity when grief overwhelmed her; as parents John and I will always be thankful that you ‘danced’ into our lives at that point in time. Something else that she has repeatedly mentioned is your ability to demonstrate - she is a visual learner – technique and choreography." 

Jacquie and John Boumford, talking of their daughter's experience with Karen Muller. 

At Karen Muller Elite & Positive Mindset, Karen is focused on providing quality service with our Elite Mindset Coaching Programs.  With Elite & Positive Mindset, Karen meets YOUR dancers needs and takes them to their highest level.  

Our focus is to enhance the dancer's USE OF THEIR MIND Through programs which are designed to work along side of your dancer's normal classes and to enhance the work they already do with their qualified teachers.

Karen discovered early that to make it in dance or any elite level in sports/performing arts, it started with the WAY YOU THINK, your belief of who your are and what limits you perceive to have. Talent alone does not get you to the top.  Karen realized this early, as the dancers she was coaching required much more then physical training.  To gain an elite pre-professional level, it had to be a combination of Mind and Body with an emotional attachment. Much care is taken with your dancer by Karen with a view of being a development of a dancer that can not be rushed, but rather 'instilled' carefully so as to survive a life time.

With a variety of services to choose from, we know you will be happy working with
