Lightweight Mobility Scooters – Luggie does Burlesque!

It’s amazing what a Luggie Mobility Scooter can do for so many people. We received a very interesting blog from one of our happy customers on an innovative way to use our Lightweight Mobility Scooters and how hers has enhanced her life:

I viewed the Luggie Lightweight Mobility Scooters range in March 2016, by which time I had already located a tutor who would work with me and Luggie so that I could continue my burlesque journey, despite increasing mobility issues. My hubby took me to my first ever burlesque show in 2011 and I fell in love with burlesque and asked for a lesson as a Christmas present. Hubby managed to find me an 8 week course and I was smitten. Although I said I would never wear a corset or perform in public at my first class. That was January 2012 and I performed in March that year as part of a troupe! I continued to do that until 2016 when my mobility issues started to worsen. I developed my first solo act with Luggie “Born to be Wild.” Luggie has a stage name, we are known as Pixie Rider and Luscious Legs and our strap line is, “The sassy looking lassie with the separate chassis.” I have already made several changes to my first act and really enjoy receiving feedback from audience members, other performers and producers so that I can improve the acts and get the message across that “people with disabilities can still do burlesque, we just have to do it differently.”

I am debuting this act as part of Burlesque Idol in the September heat. I will be on the stage at the Hippodrome Casino Leicester Square, so if you around on the 29th September, come and see how Luggie works on the stage. I don’t think any other scooter would have been as successful, for several reasons including it folds into skateboard mode so I can hide it under a sparkly red cloth before I go on stage, all parts like the seat are part of the whole so easy to build into mobile mode on stage and the tight turning circle it does has been a must as some stages are tiny!

Luggie Lightweight Mobility Scooters really can take you to many places and give you opportunities you’d perhaps given up on. If you’ve got a story that you’d particularly like to share with us, like Sharon did, then we would love to hear from you!
