    BCT Babies!


    BCT is thrilled to announce the launching of our very own early childhood program, BCT Babies!, taught by Mary Jo Verruto.  Designed to introduce your child to your love of Broadway tunes, BCT Babies! taps into our innate pre-verbal languages of music and bodily expression to deepen connections between caregiver, child, and community.  In each class, grown-ups will learn music and theatre activities to build their babies’ confidence through every exciting milestone.


    Mary Jo Verruto is a teaching artist, actor and musician who has been working primarily in early childhood education since 2005.  Earning her BFA in Musical Theatre from the HARTT School in CT, Mary Jo has used her training and experience as both an educator and children’s performer to develop engaging curriculum for each phase of early childhood.  She started her own program, “Toddler Time With Mary Jo”, taught Music For Aardvarks, and collaborated with Joanne Solomon to bring an original program, “Stomp and Shout”, to the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music, where she remains a faculty member in the early childhood division.  In addition to working with the little ones, Mary Jo performs with “The Improbable Players,” a theatre troupe bringing dramatic workshops on drug and alcohol abuse prevention to middle and high schools. Her solo show, Born MYdentity, which was part of Theatre Row’s United Solo Theatre Festival, is being further developed for a run Off-Broadway.
