A LANCASTER dancer who found fame on a TV talent show has launched a new career as a burlesque dancer.

Alice Woodhouse, 24, has teamed up with two friends to form burlesque dance group Garters and Lace, and will be appearing at the Stonewell Tavern in Lancaster on Sunday evening from 7.30pm.

Along with Bethany Whittle and Kayleigh Gore, Alice, who is from Owen Road in Skerton, will also be appearing at The Albany pub in Great Portland Street, London, on March 23.

Alice, who took part in So You Think You Can Dance? last year, has fought back to full fitness after suffering an horrific facial injury at a birthday party in October.

The former Our Lady’s Catholic College pupil was celebrating at trendy London club Movida when she tripped over a step while carrying a glass. When she fell over, shards of the glass pierced her chin, lower lip and neck, with some entering her windpipe.

It happened just days after she had achieved a breakthrough by appearing as a dancer in pop star Pixie Lott’s latest video. S

he also missed out on the second round of auditions for the London muscial Thriller but bounced back with a role in the panto Snow White in Wolverhampton.
