Muriska or leap is used to describe the dance steps that are performed when the dancer jumps up into the air and plaits his feet in the air. Even though there are various types of leaps, they all have the same base. The dancer bends his knees and makes a demi-plié in order to perform a leap, when he pushes himself up in the air and when he lands.  As he jumps up into the air, the demi-plié allows the dantzari to get the necessary momentum to perform the leap.

When he lands, it acts as a shock absorber and prevents the back suffering from the impact which could result in an injury. Thus, the knees are bent when performing the demi-pliés, but once the dancer jumps into the air, he straightens his knees and he cross his legs in the manner laid down for each muriska or leap, while keeping his knees straight. Given that he starts with his legs in the initial position, they remain in the open position as the leap is being performed.  In order to jump vertically upwards, the dancer straightens his knees, raises his heels from the floor and pushes himself up with the tips of his feet. Thus, the tips of his feet are already pointing towards the floor even before the dancer jumps up into the air

The leaps are not supposed to be very high and the dancer is supposed to perform a short jump and cross his legs as quickly as possible. The leg crosses are performed at great speed even if the leap is not too high off the ground.

When performing any type of leap, [the dantzari] has to touch the floor with the tips of his feet before his heels; on the one hand, because the  This explains the saying among Basque dancers that a good dancer is one that is able to tread on an egg without breaking it.
