Habitus is a sociological term that indicates ingrained habits, skills and dispositions. It is the way that individuals perceive the world around them and react to it. These dispositions are usually shared by people with similar backgrounds (such as social class, religion and profession). Dancers share habitus, and the „dance world“ is a tribe. The habitus is the way group culture and personal history shape the body and the mind of this tribe. The habitus consists of both the tendency to use the body in a certain way, such as posture and style, and more abstract mental habits, feelings, as well as actions. These are not mere habits. These are attitudes, mannerisms, tastes. This piece celebrates them.
