Those aren't variations. They are just different girls doing the same exact split. Some just have more flexibility than others.

Does this training class work on more than just splits? Because dancers do need more flexibility than just splits. They need flexibility many areas of their bodies, and in different directions.

Be careful to have them square their hips when stretching. Particularly you can see it in the first photo - most people can fake splits/oversplits with their hips opened to the side, she needs to square them down.

Good observation. Oversplits should not be performed at a height at which the stretcher cannot maintain proper form (hips squared, legs straight, center touching floor).
