Dance student looks for a subtle breeze in the Haitian heat

I taught a dance class in a small church in Gressier, Haiti. The students would dance their hearts out but take frequent breaks so they didn't overheat. There is seldom a breeze on their island, yet they wait for relief just the same. The curtains and decor are customary of Haitian churches.
