What MakeThatMove used to be?
The company was formed by Consol Efomi who graduated from the University of West of Scotland in Paisley in June 2011. Mr Efomi, who moved to Glasgow twelve years ago from the Congo, started performing when he was just 9 years old. When he was 12, he joined a professional hip hop /street dance crew in Belgium call ‘The Magical Band’ after which, he returned to the Congo where he completed his studies.
He arrived in Scotland in 2002 and worked for the Destiny-Church in Glasgow, helping homeless people and those with drug addictions. To help lift morale he started giving occasional hip hop dance performances, then formed MakeThatMove, hosting dance classes around the city as means of earning some extra money. The first real Hip Hop classes in Glasgow.

It was while Consol Efomi was in his final year at the UWS studying for a BA in Business Studies with Enterprise, that he had the idea to create ‘The Global Dance Video Hub’, a one stop shop portal that provides Hip Hop dance videos available for Apple and Android apps.
