I took this course in April and thought it was pretty fun. I've never ridden on a dirt bike, but I wanted to improve on my (dry) track riding skills.
The course focuses on using different techniques for different levels of traction. They tell you to push yourself to the limits of traction, so you know how it feels like when you lose it. When you lose traction on the racetrack, it's very painful and expensive, but falling on the dirt course on a dirt bike is OK, and they encourage it!
You ride 7 hp dirt bikes and go about....10-15mph max, but on the tight course, it feels like you're flying.
Overall, I thought the course was pretty good and worth the cost. I flew in from NY, so the total cost was a lot more, so if you're in the charlotte area, I would definitely give this course a try. If I lived in the area, I would take this course at least once a year as a refresher.
Even if you don't plan on doing track days, I think this course is benefitial to street riders. It will definitely make you a better rider all around. You can do things in the course that you would never try on the street/track. Powering out of turns and having the rear slide out was a lot of fun. So was "backing it in" while braking hard.
