A DEPTFORD star shone at the Olympic Opening Ceremony when her dancing talent was beamed to millions around the globe.

Jasmine Breinburg, who lives in the Crossfields Estate, wowed the nation with a romantic dancing number in Friday’s show.

The 18-year-old is currently concentrating on passing A-levels at the Brit School before trying to find work as a professional dancer.

She said: "I actually would like to study some more - I was offered a conditional place to study history at university but would like to do more A-levels.

"Performing at the ceremony has restored my faith in dance - I had begun to fall out of love with it. I have regained my confidence."

The dancer has previously performed in the Royal Festival Hall with group Shift, from the London Contemporary Dance School, but said she was not the most talented performer in the huge cast.

She said: "I don’t know what I was chosen for - it wasn’t because I was the best dancer. I didn’t really know how it was going to be received.

"I had faith in our choreographers, who were fantastic, but you still worry no-one will like it. Sometime I was completely nervous."

12-year-old Humphrey Keeper from Forest Hill also moved viewers with his note-perfect solo of Jerusalem.

The choir boy from St William of York primary delivered a beautiful rendition of the classic British hymn in front of millions.

He was joined at the ceremony by nine other performers from the Forest Hill-based primary school.
