Ashley taught me the skills and gave me the confidence to break out of my comfort zone and enjoy playing in the moment.  ~ Kate B.


The class and the way Ashley taught it was a revelation and a new way to look at the world and live in the moment. I loved it so much and can't recommend taking an improv class (especially with Ashley as a teacher) enough.  ~ Matt E.


The best part of Ashley's class was her ability to explain without judging, ability to be very direct in a playful way, and most importantly creating an environment where everyone feels safe and appreciated…Joining her class is one of the best choices I have ever made.  ~Eric B.

Take Your Skills to New Heights

Teaching well calls for careful listening, collaboration, open-mindedness, creativity, flexibility, and much more. Some of these skills are developed on the job, over time. But they can be honed at whole new levels through formal training in improvisation, where these skills are part of every interaction and decision.


Much of our stress as teachers can be reduced or be faced with greater confidence with this kind of intentional training. It can also help us become able to serve a wider range of students in a wider range of situations.


The Ever-Ready Educator uses a professionally designed improv curriculum that has been customized to help teachers grow pedagogical skill and confidence. Over the course of six weeks, you will...

  • Deepen your understanding of relationship-building

  • Learn to listen with your whole body

  • Become more comfortable accepting things you cannot control

  • Become more patient with developing situations

  • Learn to use your physicality for specific communicative purposes

  • Gain confidence in both casual and high-stakes settings with colleagues, guardians, and other groups

  • Have fun in the process!


Each two-hour class session will consist largely of learning and playing improv games and exercises that target a particular skill. Classes will also include discussion of specific applications to educational situations and to the life of a teacher.


The Ever-Ready Educator is for you if...

  • You want to bring more peace and joy into your classroom and your life

  • You sometimes struggle with what to do when plans go awry

  • You want to gain confidence in social interactions

  • You’ve always wanted to take an improv class but haven’t found the right opportunity

  • You enjoy trying new things and stretching your imagination

Feedback on Ashley's classes and workshops

Ashley taught me the skills and gave me the confidence to break out of my comfort zone and enjoy playing in the moment.  ~ Kate B.


Everyone should take Improv! The skills you learn in just one class will make you a better listener, hone your memory skills, and encourage playfulness and creativity. Ashley is an incredibly supportive and attentive teacher. She makes class a safe space and empowers students to take risks and tap into what brings them joy.   ~Emily K.


As an improv teacher, coach, and performer, Ashley Davis is the real deal. I joined her class as a nervous beginner but by the end she had made me feel completely at ease. I learned a ton from Ashley about trusting my instincts, supporting my scene partners, and being confident as a speaker and performer. In any class Ashley teaches, students feel truly accepted, supported, and seen.  ~ Beth S.


Ashley was my very first improv teacher and changed my life! Seriously, and with no hyperbole. Her classes gave me confidence and comfort in being myself (that I never knew I had) that I use not only on an improv stage, but in my daily life as well. She created an incredibly welcoming and creative space that allowed each student to discover and grow at their own pace and comfort level. There was absolutely no discomfort, judgment, or anxiety. It was only shared laughter, learning, and personal growth. For me personally, the class and the way Ashley taught it was a revelation and a new way to look at the world and live in the moment. I loved it so much and can't recommend taking an improv class (especially with Ashley as a teacher) enough.  ~ Matt E.
