If you’re a wild dancer, you probably enjoy kinesthetic thrills: thrills having to do with the experience of movement.

The adjective kinesthetic comes from the noun kinesthesia, which means the sensory perception of movement. Kinesthesia happens when the brain gets feedback from muscles and ligaments about how the body is moving. Dancing is a kinesthetic art form. If you’re interested in kinesthetic questions, you might consider going into physical therapy as a career.
