Samantha Gilmore is a Designated Linklater Voice Teacher who trained with Kristin Linklater in Orkney, Scotland. Samantha has taught at the New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts, CAP21/Molloy College, Tom Todoroff Studio, in addition to the General Theological Seminary in New York, NY and Princeton Theological Seminary in Princeton, NJ. In each of these settings, she brings an interdisciplinary sensibility, a collaborative spirit, and a sensitivity to the student’s individual needs and the material at hand. She seeks to provide a balance of rigor and support, which creates space for students to take risks without bypassing the disciplined, slow learning required for the development of an embodied voice that allows each word to resound and be manifested through the speaking body. Samantha will graduate with a Ph.D. from Princeton Theological Seminary in May 2022.
