Weird Hip/Upper Leg Problem

Hi! When I sit too long in some positions (sitting with legs out on the floor, or sitting with feet up in a chair), my right hip/upper leg does this strange thing where it feels out of place. It's not like a biting/jabbing pain, though pain can hit suddenly, but when it happens, I have to walk in such a way that avoids my regular movement, until the pain goes away (10 minutes or so). I do Zumba (tons of movement in every direction), and nothing ever hurts then - it's just after I've been sitting for a while, in some position that doesn't agree with me. What could this be, and is there physical therapy that could fix it? How can I even capture it or explain it better so that it's clearer what's going on? Thanks so much for any help you can give!
