Frances Rings

“I enjoy sharing my stories of Indigenous culture with the world, and impacting peoples’ lives through dance in a positive way.”

 

From a young age, Frances just loved dancing and performing on stage. At the tender age of 16, she began formal dance training at NAISDA Dance College and was thrilled to be offered a job by the highly acclaimed Bangarra Dance Theatre after graduating.

Frances has devoted her life to her craft, and has spent 12 years as a dancer and eight years choreographing. She has travelled the globe, soaking up experiences that have helped to mould her into the incredibly passionate person she is today. 

 


“I enjoy sharing my stories of Indigenous culture with the world, and impacting peoples’ lives through dance in a positive way.”

 

In 2007, NAISDA Dance College relocated from Sydney to the Central Coast. The college offers world-class training facilities and state-of-the-art dance studios for its students from all over Australia, and is a feeder school into Sydney’s Bangarra Dance Theatre.

 

Frances has always felt a very strong connection to NAISDA, and in 2015, wanting to give something back to the place that gave an incredible start to her career, she took on the role of NAISDA Head of Creative Studies, moving her family to the Central Coast.


Frances speaks enthusiastically about her life on the Central Coast. Living a healthy and vibrant lifestyle, you will often find her on the beach by her home in Ettalong. She shares her life and home with her husband and two sons who, in their spare time, love to paddle board or surf, and weekend time is well invested into the Peninsula Swans Junior AFL Club!

 

Frances loves her life outside of the city and particularly enjoys family trips to the Central Coast’s beautiful national parks. She loves that her children can really feel the sense of Indigenous culture in these beautiful areas.
