This dance is only performed today in two places, at Yungdrung Choeling Dzong and Beling - just further along the hillside. There are attempts to revive a dance called Bep Cha Drug at Padtselling that have just begun. Core of Culture has worked with and filmed Ap Dorji - an 85 year-old man who danced Bep Cha Drug over forty years ago at the last performed Padtselling Drubchen.
