It's really normal at 2, no matter what you do, and kids are always better behaved for other people than their parents.

Putting her in a class could help her learn those social boundaries and rules, so I wouldn't keep her out until she learns the rules but rather put her in to help her learn the rules.

As for teaching her the rules, it's simple. She is free to do as she wishes so long as it doesn't hurt herself or someone else or upset someone else. With that as a guideline, you can help her learn when and where and with who she can do certain things. The rest of the time, you just let her know what she can't do, why she can't do it, and what she can do instead (redirect her).

Then, give it time. A lot of time. Because every 2 year old is a LONG ways away from learning these things.
Thank you Jaidynsmum for the beautiful siggy!
