If you like to dance, then you should find dance classes that will train your body to dance in your chosen tradition, whether that be classical ballet, modern, jazz, hip-hop, etc. From your screen name, I take it you like classical ballet.

Whatever you do, it's worthwhile to get the best training you can find that is available to you, and to work hard and consistently at it. Avoid the "Dolly Dinkle" schools. I don't think your career aspirations make any difference in this regard. You will need to study ballet at least 3-5 times per week to make progress after a certain point. In the end, ballet should be fun, or at least enlightening and challenging.
