Rapper Lil Jon is encouraging fans to get healthy by embarking on a unique Zumba dance tour.

The Yeah! hitmaker is teaming up with officials from the Zumba Fitness company to take advantage of the exercise craze, in which participants tone muscles by engaging in energetic dance routines in a party atmosphere.

Celebrity instructor Gina Grant will lead the group classes, while Lil Jon will provide the music for the four special dates.

He tells AllHipHop.com, "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. 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 Zumba Nightclub Series will kick off in Boston, Massachusetts on 9 April (13) and will hit Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and Queens, New York before wrapping up in Cincinnati, Ohio on 13 April (13).
