where can i find a place to train for acting for someone my age?

i am 19 years old and have always loved doing school plays and things like that. when i was in high school i took a theatre arts class and fell in love with it. i seriously want to break into acting but i am now 19 years old and have no idea where to start i feel like its too late and too expensive. i never had the money before but now i have a full time job and i am willing to do whatever it takes. i looked at acting camps but they are all for children and young teens please please please help me i want this more than anyone can imagine.

    would help to know where you are. where your located will determine what opportunities are available. look in the phone book for acting instruction or in one of the acting trade magazines like VARIETY,HOLLYWOOD REPORTER or

    BACKSTAGE. acting classes and open auditions will be listed. look around you for community theaters,classes are held at some theaters. you don't need a camp, just find some classes.
