You may be able to do the splits but still have tight hip flexors. If this is the case you are putting more strain on the hamstrings than you need to. Over time, this will lead to strain on the hamstrings and eventually you will experience limited mobility in the back of the legs and you will still have tight hip flexors. This will continue to limit your mobility and flexibility, particularly hip extension, meaning anything you do with one leg behind you.

"The ability to do the splits correctly affects many aspects of dance and is one of the foundations for success. The splits translate to an ability to meet the technically challenging aspects of dance with ease and efficiency. Without this you will have to work a whole lot harder as a dancer."
