If there are lines in that flooring, get your toes right on one when you do each rep - you'll see that you're jumping forward a bit - work on staying behind the line everytime. With the drop snatches, it's in your dip - your weight shifts to your toes as you dip. With the snatches, you're bumping the bar out away from yourself. Keep your weight back a bit more and force your elbows to the sides as you pull under.
