In classical mechanics, one can keep track of individual particles. For example, if you have two particles in a system, you can color these particles red and blue and follow them. Notice this, for classical mechanics, dynamical variables are $(q_i,p_i)$ with $i=1,2$. There is nothing classical mechanics that prevents you from specifying more variables e.g ...
