What is the difference between regular stretches and dancer stretches? I see a lot of "stretches for dancers" stuff and am curious. Is it that dancers are typically more flexible and need a little more umph in theit stretches or what?

Dancers are more flexible so they need something more extreme.  The normal flexibility stretches are more like a simple exercise. This is from experience

Surely any stretch can be 'extreme' no? Take for example the forward fold - it can be a regular everyday stretch for some people but the super-flexible can go further and put their head between their knees! I seem contortionists turn every basic stretch into something 'extreme' simply by going further than anyone else can. So, though I'm not a dancer, I don't get what you mean by 'extreme' stretches. Could you give any example?
