Arched back?

When it comes to latin, I have this tendency to arch my back and stick out my butt. My dance instructors tell me not to do that, and that you should be standing straight, and that your hips should not be further back than your shoulders.

However, when I look at professionals dance, I noticed that they sort of arch their back and that their hips are way behind their shoulders.

Am I just seeing things wrong?

Any clarification would be appreciated :)

Secret, I would like to know the answer to this too. I've also seen it.
