Patrick Studios Australia (PSA) is one of the most recognised performing arts institutions in Australia


Now in its tenth year, Patrick Studios Australia (PSA) is one of Australia’s leading performing arts schools. Under the direction of Todd Patrick, PSA offers specialised courses to develop the country’s next generation of young, vibrant performers.

What we offer

2011 saw the addition of Andrew Hallsworth's new Fulltime Musical Theatre Course and a partnership with Swinburne University to provide nationally accredited qualifications for all fulltime students. The school also offers a Junior and Senior Elite Program for young performers seeking intensive training in dance, singing and acrobatics. Finally, we offer beginner dance for those just starting out.

In 2014 we launched The Academy – High School of Performing Arts. The Academy is available to gifted students in years 9 through to 12 that seek comprehensive training in the performing arts, as well as a commitment to complete their VCE studies.

Our Commitment

The school prides itself on its commitment to providing the highest level of training paired with unmatched industry opportunities. The results are clearly reflected in our students’ success stories and their ability to gain ongoing professional industry work.
