BUTCH & MARY KOTOWSKI
In 1976, Butch & Mary started POLKA'S UNLIMITED INC., a company based in Annapolis, Maryland. Our mission was to become a professional dance company that provides quality dance lessons, dance performances, dance competitions, and travel tours to Festivals and Resort areas across the United States. Although we started out exclusively in the Polka field, we quickly expanded to Latin/American Ballroom, Rock n' Roll, Disco, Swing, Country and other forms of social dancing. Today, we offer a wide range of services to meet the needs of our customers.
Since 1976, as professional dance instructors, we have graduated many thousands of students from many states across the USA, the Bahamas, and Poland taking into consideration all forms of dance that we teach to both adults and children.
As professional dance performers, we have performed over 600 Polka Dance Exhibitions including many television and cable TV appearances that have reached millions of polka fans in their homes. We have performed with Bobby Vinton, the Lawrence Welk travel show, at the Kennedy Center, most of the Resort Hotels in the Catskill Mountains in NY, and Resorts in the Pocono Mountains of PA, plus many dance festivals and dance halls across the United States. We created and hosted 15 National Polka Dance Competitions™ in Michigan and New York during the 1980's and 1990's.
In 1983-1984, we co-hosted the "Polka Explosion" radio show, on station WLMD, Laurel, MD. As Polka DJ's and Polka Promoters, we brought a variety of polka music to the Washington, Maryland and Virginia areas. We left the air-waves to travel and to promote polka dancing.
Since 1976, we have received many awards for our promotion of Polka Entertainment, and based on our wide exposure to many ethnic groups, we have been considered by many polka fans, promoters and bands, as:
