(AllHipHop News) Atlanta rapper Lil Jon is partnering with Zumba Fitness to create a new nightclub tour titled “Zumba Nightclub Series.”
According to reps for Zumba Fitness, the outing will combine the party atmosphere of the Zumba dance class, with Lil Jon’s turntable antics, to hype up the experience.
Lil Jon will be joined by celebrity Zumba instructor Gina Grant, who will lead the dance fitness class.
“Fitness and health are important to me, and Zumba fans hit me up all the time tellin’ me how my songs and voice motivate them to get them through their workout,” Lil Jon told AllHipHop.com in a statement. “Now we’re helping to bring the Zumba experience to the nightclub scene. I’m excited to DJ this tour and give Zumba fans a fitness party they’ll never forget!”
The goal of the new tour with Lil Jon and Gina Grant is to attract new users to the Zumba Fitness program, in a nontraditional work out atmosphere that will include club lighting, special-effects and a cutting edge sound system.
“I love being a Zumba instructor because my goal is to get people to move and be active in a fun way,” said Gina Grant. “This nightclub series is such an incredible opportunity to get the world to dance and be healthy. The nightclub is the perfect venue for this and Lil Jon’s DJ skills will light up the room with energy!”
Lil Jon recorded a new song titled “Work” specifically for Zumba Fitness, which debuted earlier this month at a conference in Los Angeles, where over 3,000 instructors attended.
The “Zumba Nightclub Series” will start April 9 in Boston, Massachusetts and conclude April 13 in Cincinnati, Ohio.
