Mayor Bloomberg wants to give more New Yorkers a chance to dance.
City Hall is looking to eliminate - or at least loosen - the cumbersome cabaret license so more bars and businesses can allow patrons to let loose, the Daily News has learned.
"We either want to eliminate the license or establish a different license so that it would be less onerous for people to engage in dancing," said a source close to the mayor.
The 82-year-old license "as it exists doesn't offer a reasonable opportunity for New Yorkers to dance at clubs," the City Hall source said.
The administration is in talks with the Consumer Affairs Department, which issues the licenses, and the NYPD, which enforces them, to make the change.
