Cincinnati heat can't keep a good choir down

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Cincinnati set a 138-year-old record high temperature on Friday, but with choirs visiting the Queen City from all over the world, how hot is it for them?

With Cincinnati experiencing near record temperatures, it's too hot to do most things, except sing and dance.

Members of the Belgian dance troop, Incar Dansspectakel, put their stamina to the test performing several numbers at Fountain Square, even getting down on the hot pavement.

Dansspectakel's gyrations even made some of the spectators hot, but dancer Matthias Uyttersprot says they know how to keep their cool. "Drink a lot of water and stay in the shadow as much as possible."

Members of the Oakville Children's Choir from Ontario Canada say they keep cool by eating lots of ice cream, drinking lots of water, wearing shorts and finding air conditioned buildings.

A choir from Guangdong province in China sings 'Jingle Bells' to beat the heat.

However, singing about a wintry wonderland isn't enough to cool the choir from Puerto Rico.

They sing 'Hace calor, hace calor' which means 'It's hot' in Spanish.

The group admits it's hot in Puerto Rico, but not like Cincinnati's heat.
