The resurgence of dance was first seen in 2003, when it was performed during the Mid-Autumn Festival. It was included on the National Intangible Heritage List. Wu took his team to Australia during Spring Festival in 2013, to perform during Spring Festival activities in Sydney and was very well received.

Wu even initiated a festival in name of the dance, which has gained support from the government. It includes touring performances and exhibitions. Their recent exposure at the village was at a Children's Day celebration held by local government.

A bright future is ahead for the art, as it has found both followers and audience in the masses.
