"I am passionate about encouraging directors in becoming Actor/Directors by bringing a level of truth to their work," says Kelly Galindo. "And to enjoy the creative process & journey in being an 'artist'."

After graduation, Galindo worked with pop music icon, Tiffany, working as a dancer and choreographer before setting her sights on acting. She attended the Lee Strassberg Institute, where she studied method acting under Anna Strasberg and Heddy Sontag. She soon was cast in many independent films and guest starred on hot television series, such as General Hospital, Mad TV, Alias, and ER. 

Today, Galindo manages to balance her successful acting career while passing on her craft to future generations, both here at Dodge College, at UCLA, and through the private classes she teaches at her company, KG Productions. She says, “I am passionate about encouraging directors to become both artists and actors’ directors and to help them bring a new level of truth to their work.”
