Pay attention to the name and description of the class you're walking into: You'll find it a lot easier to keep up with a Level I or Beginner-specific class than an Advanced or Level III one. (If you see "open level" on a description, it means that all skill levels are welcome.) Most studios and gyms will offer a variety of classes throughout the week -- maybe even a variety of different styles -- so talk to an instructor or front-desk person to decide what class best fits your needs.
