HCD dances are held in three venues—Griffith Academy in the Old Wethersfield section of Wethersfield, the West Hartford Town Hall in West Hartford Center, and Patriots Park Lodge in Coventry.
The Griffith Academy is home to the HCD Swing Jam, regular Contra (and Contra Jam), Cajun/Zydeco, and Mostly Waltz events. Note that the two annual special Contra dances are held at the West Hartford Town Hall (see below). Wood-floored and air conditioned, the Griffith Academy is conveniently located at 275 Main Street in Wethersfield in a quaint old building that used to be an American Legion Hall.
