partial fractions
is there a way of writing

$\frac{sin^2x}{(1-a^2 sin^2x)^\frac{3}{2}}$

as partial fractions?

no.

just wondering, are you trying to integrate this?

Yes, I'm trying to get it in terms of incomplete elliptic integrals of the two kinds but don't know what to do with the denominator.
