HOW DO I REGISTER FOR CLASSES?

All students must register and complete payment prior to class. 

Students may register in person at the welcome desk on the second floor at 280 Broadway.

OR

Online through our website or The MindBody Online app.

890 Broadway 5th Floor (Union Square) Classes:

Students taking ballet must register with the Class Registration desk located in the main hallway of 890 Broadway outside Studio 5-2.

In-person registration occurs 10-15 minutes before class at the welcome desk with your Gibney membership card. It is mandatory that you sign in and pay at the desk before going into a class studio unless you have pre-registered.

If you have pre-registered online, you may go directly into the class studio without stopping at the welcome desk.

CAN I PRE-REGISTER FOR CLASSES?

You may reserve your place in class by pre-registering on the Gibney website or the MindBody Online app.

Students may also purchase Single Class, Movement Research class credits, 5 Class Series, 10 Class Series, Access8 classes and Playground Online Registration credits via the website for future use. Pre-register at GibneyDance.org/ClassSchedule.

HOW DO I PAY FOR CLASSES?

Students may pay for class with cash, check, credit/debit cards, or class series via their membership card. Please make checks payable to Gina Gibney Dance, Inc.

Payments exceeding $40 must be made via card or check.

To maximize clarity and security, we encourage you to pay with credit or debit card whenever possible.

THE PLAYGROUND NYC
For The Playground NYC classes, students must pay $10 in cash for their first class to receive a special Playground membership card, which is presented upon future visits to receive the $5 class price for Playground classes. If they fail to bring their Playground card, they will not receive the $5 price. Playground classes purchased in person must be paid for in cash only. Online Playground registration is available, paid with credit/debit card, for $6.

ZENA-ROMMETT FLOOR BARRE AT 890 BROADWAY
For Zena-Rommett Floor Barre classes at 890 Broadway only, registration occurs in person in the studio at the beginning of class, where students will pay the teacher directly. Since Zena-Rommett Floor Barre® at 890 classes are drop-in only, pre-registration is not available. 

WHAT IS YOUR CLASS CANCELATION AND REFUND POLICY?

Pre-registrations may be cancelled up to the class start time via Mindbody Online or by contacting Gibney via phone or in person. Pre-registrations cannot be canceled after the class start time and you will be charged for the class. 

If you cancel a pre-registration, or if Gibney cancels a class, the class credit will automatically be applied to your account. If a non-series credit was used for a canceled class and you prefer a refund, please let our welcome desk staff know.

Please be advised that if you pre-register online for a class with an incorrect class credit, you will be required to purchase the correct class credit prior to entering class. Partial payments will not be accepted at any time; we are happy to refund the incorrect class credit. 

The Training Program staff evaluates refund requests on a case-by-case basis. Gibney is not able to process any partial refunds, including partially used class-series. Students may only receive a refund in the form of original payment. 

CAN I PURCHASE CLASSES FOR SOMEONE ELSE?

GIFT CARDS: Yes, gift cards are available for purchase here. Inquire at the front desk for more information. Note that class credits purchased as a gift card will begin expiring once redeemed by the recipient. 

SHARING CREDITS: Credits are transferrable. If a class series is transferred, all remaining credits will be transferred and those credits will maintain original expiration dates. 

Additionally, you may inquire with the Welcome desk to create credit sharing ‘relationships’ in MindBody Online between two accounts.
