I'd have to say that I have more of an issue with how these studios are run than anything else. I have recently had two wedding couples that defected from AM. One couple learned ONE foxtrot step in their first, 45-minute lesson.
It does look like there were some problems in the situation described, which may have included intentionally slowing the pace to drag things out. I just object to the idea of covering only one step in a class as proof of slowing the pace - if covered in the right way (which it was probably not) one step could be ample material to start with. To this day I use only two steps in social foxtrot...
