One way to get around the cost is to check out local community colleges and universities to see what they have brewing. There are many times than you can get into a workshop hosted at one of those places for a fraction of the cost that getting into a private class would.
Those serious about acting and serious about their performance quality will find that these kinds of opportunities are only bested by actual performance experience and therefore worth the costs.
