An annual residency program that awards studio time to Seattle dance artists from May to August which culminates in a performance.

OFS gives studio space to artists to use how they choose. Depending on when the residency falls during an artists’ creative project, the space can be utilized to research a new idea, meditate and reflect and/or complete a project. In the Flight Deck performance, each artist will reveal to the public a unique moment in their creative project, what they are grappling with, studying, inspired by…where they are right now.

Former Flight Deck artists include Jody Kuehner, Christin Call and Natascha Greenwalt Murphy, Jessica Jobaris, Rosa Vissers, Shannon Stewart, Zoe Scofield, Carla Barragan, Liz Erber, Alica Gosti, Beth Graczyk, Allie Hankins & Jeff Aaron Bryant, Kate Kerschbaum, Aiko Kinoshita & Sarah Gamblin, Wade Madsen, Ricki Mason, Marissa Rae Niederhauser, Amelia Reeber, Kelly Sullivan, and Stimulate Dance.
