This dance is a challenge for the artists because they have to perform many different types of movements during the performance. They have to sit, at another instant they have to jump, next they have to turn around and move in a circle. These movements require a lot of co-ordination between the two artists. They have to spend long hours during the dance rehearsals. It takes two to three months to become an expert of the dance.
The musicians play instruments like yangjey (which looks like a santoor), cymbal and gna (drum). Sometimes only a drum is used for the music during the whole performance.
The musicians and the ringmaster wear colourful costumes which include three robes, one on top of the other, a special boot and a cap.
The sikkimese people believe that if one sights the animal, it brings good luck. This dance represents the cultural aspect and faith of the people living in this state.
