this study analyzes the communication model generated among professional soccer trainers, artistic gymnastics trainers, and folkloric ballet instructors, on the basis of the dynamic body language typical of specialized communication among sportspeople and dancers, which includes a high percentage of non-verbal language. non-verbal language was observed in both psychomotor and sociomotor practices in order to identify and characterize relations between different concepts and their corresponding gestural representation. this made it possible to generate a communication model that takes into account the non-verbal aspects of specialized communicative contexts. the results indicate that the non-verbal language of trainers and instructors occasionally replaces verbal language when the latter is insufficient or inappropriate to describe an action or movement of great precision, due to circumstances of distance or acoustic interferences. with regard to ballet instructors, it was found that there was a generalized form of guiding rehearsals, through the use of rhythmic counts with hands or feet. in addition, the paralinguistic components of the different speech acts are emphasized, especially concerning intonation, duration and intensity.
