Many dancers have trouble doing front splits and flexibility is important for dancing. Many dance steps are nearly impossible to perform without being limber. The ability to sit in split positions will greatly improve lower body flexibility and increase maximum extension.
Doing splits is easier for some people than others, so don't be discouraged if it takes you a little longer to get them.
If you would like to get your front splits, or improve on the ones you already have. Try to make it a point to stretch every day. Stretching can be fun, but it should also be a bit challenging. Begin each stretching session with easy and gentle stretches. Never stretch to the point of pain!
To learn a front split:
Start with the kneeling lunge stretch. Performing this stretch often will greatly improve the flexibility in your legs.
