You didn't say what grade you are in, but if you are a Middle or High School student, you should definitely sign up for a Theatre Arts Class. You'll get the basics on acting and performing. It should also be a lot of fun; I know many middle school students who loved taking theatre arts, and several of them continued with theatre arts classes in high school. If your school does not offer any kind of Theatre arts classes, then see if there is an after school Theatre arts club, or if there is any sort of a community theatre that you could join.
If you are in college, then you should check out the theatre arts classes in your school. Think of any kind of acting as a profession, and you'll need training and experience to be successful; theatre arts classes are the way to go.
I hope this helps.
