Movie Info

African immigrant Sidiki Conde, having lost the use of his legs to polio at fourteen, balances his career as a performing artist with the almost insurmountable obstacles of life in New York City, from his fifth-floor walk up apartment in the East village, down the stairs with his hands and navigating in his wheelchair through Manhattan onto buses and into the subway.Sidiki struggles to cope with his disability and to earn a decent living, but he still manages to teach workshops for disabled kids, busk on the street, rehearse with his musical group, bicycle with his hands, and prepare for a baby naming ceremony, where he plays djembe drums, sings, and dances on his hands.

Critic Reviews for You Don't Need Feet to Dance

This portrait of an indomitable figure overcoming his handicap proves deeply inspirational.

Mar 22, 2013 | Full Review…

In a film plunked somewhat unfortunately between the inspirational and the ordinary, the impressively patient Mr. Conde voices public-service-announcement sentiments about being able to do as much as anyone else.

Mar 21, 2013 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Conde knows that being in New York has given him the opportunity to make a life, but Govenar's slow pace doesn't quite do the story justice.

Mar 19, 2013 | Full Review…

Underwhelming and undernourishing.

Mar 28, 2013 | Rating: 5.2/10 | Full Review…

An inspiring documentary about a disabled West African drummer whose music and dancing enable him to transcend his woes and rejoice in the gift of life.

Mar 25, 2013 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Despite its title, there's actually very little dancing, or rhythmic flair, in You Don't Need Feet to Dance.
