    Recently had two sites have this issue at the same time.

    Went from 1st place, to within 4 places of last (listing # 6xx) over night.

    This is on sites less than a few months old with lots of SEO work done on them.

    Do you think this is the dance, sandboxed or just a straight up penalty?

    Penalty most likely. You always want to take it easy for about 3-4 months after being indexed. Thats when you slowly build links and then ramp it up to whatever you desire around the 3-4 month mark.
