If you were a professional musician, how would you respond to an amateur who showed up at a jam session with other professionals? The amateur is going to feel a little intimidated, but as these things are you learn by doing. You wouldn't expect the amateur to keep up all the time, but you also wouldn't necessarily exclude them.
The crowd you describe is normal, as is your experience. You probably ought to remind yourself that there are other places to dance besides AM. Seek them out, go there and have a good time.
