She made her motion picture debut at age nine in Thomas Carter's TV movie "Divas."

    When asked about future goals and aspirations, Sidora states, "I want to passionately inspire, empower, and entertain." She is perhaps best known for her recurring roles on the television programs "The Game" (BET) and "That's So Raven" (Disney Channel), and has also guest starred on "Without a Trace" (CBS), "What I Like About You" (The CW), and "Girlfriends" (The CW).

    Some of her film credits include "Never Die Alone" (Fox Searchlight), "White Chicks" (Columbia), and "Wild Hogs" (Touchstone). She also starred alongside Vivica A. Fox in Screen Gems' "Motives II." Additionally, Sidora received rave reviews for her performance as dancer 'Lucy Avila' in the hit Disney feature "Step Up," playing a talented, soulful R&B singer, with two placements on the film's soundtrack. Sidora's independent film credits include the lead role in the hit break dancing film "B-Girl," "Frankenhood," "Farmhouse," "Jury of our Peers," and "Church Girl." While filming "Killing of Wendy" in Johannesburg, South Africa, Sidora created a docu-drama of her experiences there.
