— Police say the roof of a suburban Kansas City dance studio has collapsed because of the weight of snow on it.

KCTV reports that no one was in Priscilla and Dana's School of Dance when the roof gave way. The studio's owner said a dance instructor noticed the gaping hole when she arrived Friday morning to give a private lesson.

The instructor called authorities. Because gas was smelled, Missouri Gas Energy came out to turn off the gas.

The building has been condemned. The dance studio is looking for rental space so it can resume classes.
