I'm not quite sure what you mean by steps, but leaps are when you do some form of traveling step ( I prefer a tombe, pa de burre, glisad then leap) and then you go into a leap or jete. You raise your front leg, push into the air with your back, try to do a split in the air, and land on your front leg.
