Assisting Patrick in the role of Rehearsal Director is Amanda Stone. Stone also works with Patrick at Patrick Studios in Prahran. The Studios offer full time classes, as well as classes for senior, junior and elite students. More information is available at http://www.patrickstudiosaustralia.com.au/
