Re: Why stationary samba walks needs to slip?

Yes the slip is a basic part of all the samba walks and results in the characteristic pelvic action.

This variant is (approximately) Stationary only because of the relative size of the forward step 1 compared with the slip. Each dance association has its own description but they are all very similar, the intention being that the dancers stays roughly on the spot.

For step 1 the IDTA says "close instep of LF to toe of RF".
The ISTD says "close LF to RF" but adds "may be repeated closing slightly forward on 1"

And with the hips going forward. Then with the Slip, backwards. We have the Samba Body Tick.
