“Very often the improviser will move because they ‘feel like it.’ To their partner that movement might not make sense, because it might not have been motivated by something they’ve said.

When we’re aware of our movement (“Spatial Relationship” in Viewpoints-speak), we’re using our movement to help us make our point or emphasize our point.

Often I’ll move when I’m at a loss for what to say, then I’ll discover what I want to say once I’ve landed. It’s not stalling, it’s actually part of my character’s evolution.”
