Meet Someone Who Has Worked At ABT For 50 Years


“[Susan] Jones was first hired by ABT co-founder Lucia Chase [in 1971] when the company needed a short woman for the corps. She spent eight years as a dancer, … and began transitioning to the artistic staff in 1976 while assisting Twyla Tharp in Push Comes to Shove. … Maybe more than anything, Jones has been a trusted right hand for three artistic directors, guiding and coaching multiple generations of corps dancers at the company. As she celebrates her 50-year milestone, Dance Magazine decided to pick her brain about what she’s seen as the key elements of success.” – Dance Magazine
