I had similar instruction once, in a little creative camp where we learned about Dramatic Storytelling (or some such titled activity.)

The instructor told us to practice repeating the story and use hand gestures or turning your head different ways throughout the piece, if possible in a way that you could relate with the text. If you forgot what came next, remembering the progression of gestures could help.

This may be more useful for reciting lines on a stage than speaking them in front of a video of an elephant, however.

Also, sadly I never remembered/used this technique when preparing for United Way Campaign talks. Might've worked better than memorizing keywords. :)
