A maze has walls, blind alleys and dead ends — and you can get frustrated and confused and lost and end up (spoiler alert) frozen in the snow like Jack Nicholson in “The Shining.” Or attacked by cursed hedges and sucked through a magical portal to encounter (Dark Lord alert) a reconstituted Voldemort in “Harry Potter.” Or, at the very least, get stuck for hours amid corny twists and turns in the world’s largest maize maze in Dixon every fall and (reality alert) end up calling 911 from your cellphone to get out.

Carreño, dressed all in black and lithe as a panther, moved gracefully among the dancers during this warm-up session of stretches, footwork, combinations and leaps. He spoke not only in English, but in French (for the ballet moves) and Spanish as well. “Elasticity,” he requested at one point. “More arms, and beautiful,” at another. Carreño’s all-in commitment to the company extends to his residence, a condo in downtown San Jose that is minutes from work. “I knew I would have to be here 24/7,” he explains. That full-throttle mentality aligns well in the land of Google and Facebook but keeps Carreño far from his fiancée of two years, ABT corps dancer Melanie Hamrick. He’s also got two daughters, 24 and 15, from his first marriage. Like Hamrick, they live in New York. Visits to his native Cuba, where scuba diving is a favorite pastime, are becoming rarer. There’s also the matter of his post as artistic director at Carreño Dance Festival, a summer dance workshop he cofounded three years ago in Sarasota, Fla. That endeavor will continue.
