Default 2 beat kick balance

I was watching a video recently about balance in freestyle and it suggested that help find better balance you should keep your back straight and feel your legs pull on the glutes , pelvis and spine to help shift your weight more forward making you swim more horizontally and to keep the legs up, and I'm not sure if this was ever mentioned or thought of about the two beat kick as being an aid for balance ,but it does seem that when you are spearing in to the water and the leg on the same side is on the upbeat , the leg pulls a little on the glutes and pelvis and maybe the spine in the same way to help shift your weight more forward towards the center of buoyancy or gravity .Does this seem correct ?
I would like any thoughts on this .

Dave
