In recent years, in order to further protect and develop the intangible cultural heritage of "Geng Dance", and achieve the goal of developing through inheritance and inheriting through development, Gongbo' gyamda County of Nyingchi City, southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region, has taken a series of measures to overcome the development bottleneck of "Geng Dance", for realizing the purpose of promoting economy through culture, and making tourists familiar with the connotation of "Geng Dance".

In January 2019, the Party committee and government of Conggo Village, Gongbo' gyamda County, has applied for 1 million yuan RMB to organize 100 people who are good at sing and dancing from five administrative villages, and established the "Geng Dance" troupe. After 20 days of training, the performance effect is close to the professional team, which gets the high praise from departments at all levels and the masses.

"Geng Dance" of Conggo Village has been inherited and developed as an excellent folk art, which is an ancient dance based on the fairy tale. The main content is about praying for the good harvest, healthy body and family happiness, and has more than 1,000 years of history.

In 2004, "Geng Dance" was included in the list of intangible cultural heritage protection at the county level of Gongbo' gyamda County. In March 2009, it was included in the key protection projects of intangible cultural heritage in Nyingchi City. In March 2010, it was included in the key protection projects of intangible cultural heritage at the autonomous region level.
