I have no idea what you are saying

How much are word and movement connected? How would I be able to teach a contemporary dance class, which is based on discovery of the body and not on imitation of movements, without a translator? My translator, english name: Gary is great. I'm depending on him. My eyes are getting very sharp in observation the dancers’ motion. I'm able to see on the dancers movement when Gary interpreted my content in another direction then I wanted. English is not my native language. Maybe I choose English words that a native English speaker would not use. Maybe I create my own meanings. I have a lot of hands-on working to do on the bodies to re-direct them into the movement direction in which I ask them to go.
