Styling: Don’t forget to move the hips for the Latin styling. The bachata styling: – every time you touch the toe next to opposite foot do a little hip bump ‘up-down’.
The same happens with hitch – try to bump the hip as you do it. (BUT Please remember this is just styling, you don’t HAVE to do it all the way through (or at all if you don’t want ;-))
