This is a fun workout. Dmitry lost me a little bit on the his part, but it may be because I've never done the Cha-Cha before. I'm sure with some practice I'll be able to keep up with him.
Fun workout while dancing!

"I also reviewed the other So you think you can dance get fit: Cardio Funk, and they are quite similar, so I'm posting the same review slightly modified for this version below. I will say that I liked Twitch's hip hop routine on this one a bit better then Lauren's on the other, and Dmitry's cha-cha felt the most like I was actually learning to move more like a dancer. If you were only going to get one I would say maybe get this one first, except I really like Travis's contemporary routine on Cardio Funk as well.
Especially while the show is airing, who doesn't want to feel like they can be part of So you think you can dance! Totally fun to dance with a bunch of dancers from past seasons, and get a great workout at the same time.
Three different styles of dance routines (hip hop, jazz, and cha-cha), you can pick one or do all three, and there are separate chapters for the instructions to learn the routines that you can skip and go straight to the workouts after you get them down. Learning the steps is nice and slow, and easy to follow or repeat if you get lost. Then in the workouts they start with doing the routine counting, and get faster, add music, until it's more like a performance at the end - just music no counting at full speed. There is also a bonus dance workout that mixes the styles together. The dancers on the video are Travis, Katee, Dmitry, Twitch, Lauren, and Courtney.
My only slight complaint is the music is a bit generic, so you aren't going to feel like you are telling any kind of story in the routine like from the show, but after all it is an exercise dvd, so this isn't that big of a deal. It would be cool if they came out with a couple that were focused more on just dance so you feel more like a real routine though. But for now I'm pretty happy they did this at all, and the other one Cardio Funk is great as well!"
You'll Work Hard, it's Fun, but not too Complex!

"Tone and Groove is exactly like the first dvd of this set, "Cardio Funk". Both are actual DANCE dvds that give you a serious workout. Anyone watching might go:- "Ok, that doesn't look hard." No dance looks hard, but omg try and do it. The warm-up in itself is a great workout, just that.
This dvd is so fun. I love the jazz section, and the hip-hop is so laid-back and fun and calm, you feel great, Twitch is a wonderful instructor; the Latin section of this dvd is really sexy and sauve.
I'm not kidding, this dvd will get you into serious shape. It may look simple, but try and do it? You'll be sweating. It's so much more fun than a treadmill. This dvd has you jumping up, dancing around, bending, stretching, and laughing.
It's so underrated. You honestly will not be disapointed you got it. It's expertly done and so much fun."
More cardio than toning

"With the title, you would think you are getting a workout DVD that is focused on toning. That is not the case. Although this DVD focuses more on toning than the average dance DVD, it does not focus on it enough to make you sore the next morning.
I'm going to break down this review into each section.
Warm-Up-Quite a bit longer than the average warm-up, this features the same moves as in it;s partner DVD. However, it features a different song, and the instructors (all six of them instruct the warm-up) are wearing different clothes.
Hip-Hop-With Twitch, this hip-hop routine focuses more on dance than that of the routine on the partner DVD. Twitch is a good instructor really telling you how to do the routine, and he even teaches a little bit of popping. It doesn't tone that much, but if you were to work something it would have to be the back muscles.
Jazz-This routine, led by Katee, is the most toning of all three workouts. It'll work your abs, triceps, and biceps if you do the moves correctly. It is a little feminine, and I thought some of the last moves were stripping moves, but it is still fun.
Cha-Cha-This is the shortest routine, with Dmitry teaching only three moves which you do on each side. It focuses on your calves, but once the music starts, you find yourself trying to catch up rather than focus on technique. Fun, but not what I expected.
Bonus-It says that it puts all of the routines together, but you really learn more new moves than you do familiar ones in this section. It doesn't focus on toning at all but on cardio.
Cool-Down-Relaxing, but once again it is the same as the partner DVD with different music and outfits.
I took a star off because it isn't toning, but otherwise I would have given it 5 stars. It is a lot of fun, and it is a great cardio workout regardless of what the title is."
