Tracy Jones (she/her) joined AGMA as a member in 2013. Jones began her work for AGMA as a consultant in 2019. She retired from the stage in March 2020 and joined the senior staff shortly thereafter as Western Business Representative. In February 2022, she was promoted to Western Executive. As of 2023, her title is "Senior Negotiator." The title change reflects her work across regional divides and promotes a more inclusive and versatile role within AGMA.
Originally from Cork Ireland, her love of the performing arts started early on in life. At the age of 11, she moved to London to begin her professional ballet training at the Royal Ballet School where she graduated with a Trinity Diploma in Dance. Upon graduating, she performed with the Royal Ballet and the English National Ballet in London, the Barcelona Ballet in Spain, and then as a soloist dancer with the Colorado Ballet.
For the eight seasons she performed with Colorado Ballet, she represented her fellow artists as a delegate and participated in several successful negotiations. She was also a member of AGMA’s Board of Governors and served on the Membership and Member Relations Committee (MMRC). It was through these experiences that she found a passion for advocating for artists in the workplace.
During her time as a dancer, Jones also continued her studies at Cornell University’s School of Industrial and Labor relations where she obtained her certification in Labor studies in 2018. In addition, she holds a professional license as a Notary Public in the state of Colorado and speaks both English and Spanish.
In addition to her role as AGMA’s Western Business Representative, Jones is actively engaged in her local arts community through teaching and coaching the next generation of dancers. She also serves on the boards of two local non-profit organizations that promote dance in Colorado.
