Classes? in Michigan

I've been jonesing for a new MTB, but every time I found what I thought I wanted, it turned out to be out of stock. So I decided to spend time on what I've got. Now, my current bike is in no way deficient (Marin B-17 1), but you guys all know what the gotta-haves are like... Anyway, that brings me to my current problem.
This morning I had a great ride. The problem is that I took a trail that turned out to be beyond my current skill level and/or conditioning. In and of itself, sounds pretty normal. But this was a BLUE trail!
The conditioning I have figured out... from where I am, it's just ride more!
But skills... I definitely need help. Gentle, kind, forgiving help. I've been looking for classes or clinics in SE Michigan, not having any luck.

Suggestions?
