YPG The Swing-by Event Series: Drama Workshop with Steve Coats ENCORE!

  • Pei Ho Street Sports Centre Pei Ho Street Complex 333 Ki Lung Street, Sham Shui Po Hong Kong (map)

5 years ago, a Workshop Series “Bringing Drama to Planning” was organized for YPG members and received an overwhelming response. Fast forward to 2015, YPG would like to announce that ‘Wait no more! Steve is back for a Round 2 Drama Workshop!’

Through this interactive 4-hour Drama Workshop hosted by Steve Coats, YPG members will explore improvisation and creativity, as well as other techniques in self-expression and voice projection. While planners strive to be effective communicators in their line of work, this workshop is perfectly designed to let our creative juices flow and learn how to think on our feet.

Experience in drama and acting is totally not necessary!

About the Instructor:

Stephen Coats is a skilled actor, teacher and professional speaker based in Halifax, Canada. He currently works full time as a high school drama and dance instructor, managing to pursue television, radio and film acting, and professional speaking engagements in his spare time. He has appeared in US and Canada television features and national advertising campaigns, in addition to stage production. Perennially popular with his students for his off-the-wall sense of humour, Steve's most important work takes place in the drama studio where he creates a safe space for exploration through movement, communication and play. Most importantly, this is a space to share in the experience of having fun!
