Turn your head in the direction you want the bike to go and don't look down at the lines.

Oh trust me they told me that several times. Once I got out there and I turned my head, I also turned my wrist and let's just say I left the box by a little bit . so OP make sure you practice whatever you feel you have difficulty with, you'll have time to do so during class

No - just 1. The name took up 2 lines.

I'm completely new - never ridden before.

Don't sweat the class, the instructors are there to help you. If you don't understand any of the exercises ask questions. Don't stress out and most importantly have fun.
