The YES! Lab’s purpose is to help develop the most well-rounded and well-prepared improvisers that Denver has ever seen. Students who leave The YES! Lab are able to handle anything that comes their way, on stage and off, because the rules of improvisation relate directly to life.
Improv is a performance-based art form, but at The YES! Lab, we are devoted to showing you how the simple act of saying YES! (the cornerstone of all improvisation) is applicable to your everyday life. You need not be a performer or someone with any inclination to do improv on stage. Everyone can do this!
The YES! Lab’s instructors have the most extensive training you’ll find anywhere in Denver. With a deep dedication to the craft, our instructors have accumulated training from Second City Chicago, iO (formerly ImprovOlympic), iO West, Annoyance Theater and the Wisconsin Theater Games Center. This combined total of over 60 years of improv training and performing experience ensures that each student receives exceptional guidance in improv history, theory, form and application. We encourage all our students to explore every avenue of improvisation, as well as anything that interests them about the craft, so they can evolve into well-rounded improvisational actors.
