Does your program include production credits?

scan of Ballets: USA on the Ed Sullivan Show, 1960, dancing what's become known as the "Mistake Waltz" from Robbins's THE CONCERT.

the following identifications come from B. M. Fisher:
(left to right) Wilma Curley and Pat Dunn front row. Maybe the last girl on the right is Gwen Lewis.(B.M.F. was not in the Waltz, tho' she danced what she calls in her book, IN BALANCHINE'S COMPANY, the "Mad Ballerina."

the NYPL dance cat. entry on the film follows:
The concert 1960. 15 min. sd. b&w.

scan of a publicity photo of Robbins's FAUN from '61 - which was the final tour of Ballets: USA (see much data in Deborah Jowitt's JEROME ROBBINS; HIS LIFE, HIS THEATER, HIS DANCE) when then-NYCB-apprentice Kay Mazzo was 15 years old and dancing the ballet opposite John Jones.
colleague David Vaughan has written me to note that Jones is among the small number of dancers to have danced both Nijinsky's and Robbins's versions of FAUN(E); DV elaborted that Jones danced Nijinsky's version in a staging by Antony Tudor, which he did in Philadelphia when he was also creating his OFFENBACH IN THE UNDERWORLD.

Hello,  I am writing on behalf of John Jones.  He is trying to find photos of himself.  He was very greatful to find this one.  Do you know where he could find others?

i don't personally, now know of any other photos of Jones.

I can ask a colleague who might know of some.

I'll post again if I learn anything further.
