    Hi Anshul,
    As your area of interest is in Animation, I would suggest you to take up a course that helps you to widen your horizons in this discipline.

    I would suggest you to join dance classes itself. Going to animation to virtually fulfill your desire is no good in the end. You will still yearn to join dancing as a career. Start with making sacrifices at your end. Use your evenings, holidays, and weekends. Don't leave your job just yet. Use it to fund your dance classes and find ways to perform on stage. Resisting family now is better than cursing them all your lives later - and I am saying this from personal experience.
