No worries Mary, apologies on my part as well for participating in the thread drift.

FWIW I'm of the opinion that it's ok to move your hips (otherwise how would we get anywhere? ) but not as a source of power; I would not move my hips if the goal of that movement was affecting uke, but if I needed to translate my body in space of course I would.
