Key of C is out of tunes

Patrons had one last chance to dance at Key of C Coffee House Sunday morning.

Since 1996, Balkan Dance has performed at the narrow cafe on Sunday mornings to standing-room-only crowds, but now the long-standing tradition is expected to move to a new location. Folk dancer Peter Scholom and the owners of Grilla Bites on the Ashland Plaza say they've agreed to open the doors for the event from 9 to 11 a.m. Sundays.

Milton Bloombaum, founder of Key of C Coffee House and the morning musical event, sold Key of C four years ago to Ardyce Hutmacher, who continued the tradition. She sold it in April to Oliver Wald and Kelly Hay, who decided to cancel it for a more expansive Sunday brunch. "We really hope the music continues and in a bigger space," Hay previously said.

The club also meets at 7:30 p.m. Fridays for dancing at the Ashland Community Center on Winburn Way.
