In 2009 Christine Brooks and Geoff Simmonds attended Loose Moose summer school in Calgary, with WIT assistance towards the fees.
Christine commented afterwards
I spent two weeks surrounded and living with improvisers from all over the world. I made contacts and connections and was taught by some of the best improv tutors in the world. In return, I shared what I’d learnt with WIT in a number of ways, including co-running (with Geoff Simmons) the first WIT band camp over a long weekend in Paekakariki. I led shows and trainings throughout the following year, was Co-Creative Director and took an active focus on helping develop some of the female players in WIT.
