"You can dance any way you like."

"You can dance however you like."

The both mean the same to me, at least in terms of grammer. Are they both idiomatic, too?

  • Yes, "however you like" or "however you wish" or "however you care to" are all idiomatic.

Both are idiomatic. "however you like" is a tad towards the formal/educated end of the spectrum. "any way" is colloquial.
