Is there anything wrong with "Er wordt weinig in de gevangenis gedanst."?

Nothing wrong with that, I hope you reported it.

I did, thanks! I also only learned through trial and error that they think jail and prison aren't equivalent (they are).

In this case I suspect it's simply a missing alternative translation in Dutch, because it's easy to overlook an identical answer in Dutch with different word order. Since the course is in beta (and hasn't been in beta for very long) these things happen.
