‘The King of Twirl’ is a ‘dance-documentary’ about the eleven year old Janero. Janero can not sit still, he’s alway dancing. He wants to prove himself and be the best in twirl, a sport that’s traditionally just for girls.

Janero is the only boy of his age in Northern Netherlands who competes in this sport. It’s a little weird to outsiders; a guy that practices with his ‘baton’ day and night. But Janero doesn’t mind being the only boy in this sport. He want’s to prove – for once and for all – that Twirl is not only a sport for girls.
