The Naming of the CATS – a project for dancers

“In “The Naming of Cats”, however, they begin to reveal themselves and that cats have three different names: the one the family uses daily, a more dignified name, and a secret name. It is the contemplation of these secret names that keeps felines deep in thought.”

If you have been looking at the story behind the CATS musical…you know that cats have three names.  As a project at home today, perhaps you could choose a name that a family would give your dancer cat, a more dignified name, and then have them draw their cat (as their secret name).  I would love to be able to post some pictures of the cats from what they draw.  They can bring their pictures to class for me and we can share with the others, and then I will scan the pictures to begin working on some postings.  Have fun choosing your names!
