"instance parent class" is not terminology used in our docs as far as I remember.  "instance's class" would be more in line with the other docs.  That would solve the pronoun reference problem more succinctly, I think.

How about this version, which also improves the awkward phrasing, but without using em-dashes:

"When a non-data attribute of an instance is referenced, the instance's class is searched."
