Fans of "dance," should get a lot of fun out of "SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE GET FIT: CARDIO FUNK."  Three trainers offer different styles of dance routines in workouts, with workouts running between 7-13 minutes in length.  Additionally, there's the option to combine the routines into a longer 25 minute routine for those in the best condition.  While there have been so many workout videos over the years, this one offers more energetic instructors, and better routines. These appear to be designed for more than just appearance, but, more importantly, for accessibility. Anyone in half-decent shape, should be able to master these routines in time. And, warm-up instructions are also stressed and explained.

Fans of the tv series, expecting routines from the series, may be disappointed, as this is merely a workout program from its creators. However, those wanting a fun, energetic workout, and expecting to get in real shape, should be very pleased with what's offered.

The image, presented in 1.78:1, is solid. Colors, while not consistently vibrant, appear better than average workout dvds. There's some minor grain, but never distracting.

The Dolby Digital 2.0 sound offers minimal separation, but the music, an important aspect to these workout routines, is well complimented through all speakers. Dialogue(instruction) is always intelligible and free from distortion.
