Signed up for class at Gibney but your schedule changed and now you can't make it? Here's what to do...
It happens! We make plans and something comes up! If you've signed up for class at Gibney but you need to cancel, send an e-mail to classes@gibneydance.org and they will help you get your class reservation cancelled.

And guess what? Sometimes our plans change and now we CAN make it to class! By being diligent and cancelling when you can't make it to class...you just might make it possible for someone who can make it to class to sign up and take your spot!

We all have a place in this wonderful dance community and it's so nice when we can look out for our fellow dancers!
To cancel a Gibney class reservation, please send an e-mail to:
Please remember to pay for class. https://gotokat.com/pay

Pay what you can (suggested $20/class).
And if you choose to pay it forward with an act of kindness...
...then a fellow dancer, who may be in need, gets to take class too!

Thank you!
Paying for class (if you can)
helps make the world go round!

Okay, but really, it does help us keep class going,
including all of the things that need to happen "backstage"
(and online) to make everything run smoothly and reliably.
And it makes the Live Music possible!
Any amount is helpful!
Master classes? Yes!
Competition coaching? Yes!
