Graffoniks takes on a hip-hop piece in its show “Temptation.” One of Graffiti’s artistic directors, Weinberg junior Maddie Banich, said she loved working on Graffoniks, which is coming back after a two-year hiatus. Each piece and each dance group have their own choreographers, but there were also collaborations between the two groups. Banich said she appreciates the shared traditions, as well as the variety of the dances and emotions they evoke.
