Google dance or penalty?

Got a couple of good backlinks and after weeks my site went down. Do you think it's Google dance, no?

You have to be able to accept failure to get better.

Typical google dance scenario, if it continues then probably it might be a penalty.

Includes important updates like Google Panda, Penguin, and more. Google started rolling out a penalty to punish aggressive interstitials and Google's Panda Dance: Matt Cutts Confirms Panda Rolls Out Monthly Over 10 Of 30 Days (SEL)

If you are not doing any black hat, it is probably just nothing. But if you do, then better start a manual check of your backlinks and clean it.

Looks like a google dance. Maybe try to check all your links if they have been indexed by google.

check for signals where you can get an idea if the dance is because of SERPs violations or it's something else.

For penalty, you can check GSC!
