We had the good fortune of connecting with Tigran Sargsyan and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Tigran, what is the most important factor behind your success?
The most important factor behind my success is commitment on whatever my focus is! It is challenging in current society with so many distractions or so many opportunities to focus only on few things. But where I find myself successful is to write down what my possible end goal can be, what can I give and what can I gain, and then really committing myself, and focus my energy towards it.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I am a professional ballet dancer. I have been in the ballet world since I was 10y.o. It was not an easy journey. It is very hard to spend so much energy and time on so many details and on training your body for more then 6/7 hours a day. On this challenging journey what kept me going is my personality, my character. I have a big presence and strong personality which appears in my dancing and personal life, and I can confidently say that even if I did other sports or choose another career I would still get to where I wanted. The most important lesson I’ve learned on my way is to never get stuck on your path, there is always more to learn and grow as an artist, as a human being.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Los Angeles has so many different spots and places to visit. I really like hanging out in Santa Monica, I like when there are people around and the city is alive. I also really like to go on hikes and explore the nature, one of my favorites is the “Wildwood regional park”. In the night times my favorite places was comedy clubs. Before COVID I used to go to “Laugh Factory” in Hollywood and can’t wait to go back to it again.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would like to thank to all my friends who have been so supportive of my life choices throughout whole my 26 years. I do believe by creating a healthy and supportive environment can make a person grow and express themselves freely. For this crazy year during COVID-19, I’m so glad to be surrounded with my two friends, more specifically Magnus Christoffersen and Kirsten Bloom Allen, that we are able to create arts and healthy space for each other.
