En / Dans le, la

En / Dans le, la

Bonjour Madame Cécile,

While attempting a microkwiz, I got wrong in the following 2 senrences -

1.Je suis en cours de danse.Je te rappelle.

2.Ton père est en prison.

I gave my answers as (i) dans le (ii) dans la but was marked incorrect.

 I did so because the lesson states dans is used when we need to be more specific about a place.

Please explain why instead en is a better choice ?

Merci d’avance.

Did you already read the comments at the bottom of the lesson page? I think they might help you get a better understanding.
