Should I roll my body when I swim the freestyle and the backstroke?

Rock and Roll

Freestyle and backstroke are both performed one arm at a time, both with a dip of the shoulder and slight roll of the body toward the side of the leading hand.

The swimming technique for both of these strokes in very similar, one performed on your stomach, and one on your back. Both swimming strokes employ the flutter kick.
