Yes, if it were possible, Mora Godoy would be the person to give the best tango classes in Buenos Aires.

Where to find them? Well, tango classes are available everywhere in buzzing Buenos Aires, from cultural centers to all the milongas (the dance halls or dance events). You can also attend many tango shows. But to make sure you avoid tourist traps, choose modest shows instead of the extremely popular ones, which are created for curious travelers. To see free shows, check out the Galerías Pacíficos where you will have the chance to see daily street performances.
And if you want something more authentic, search for the underground milongas and live tango orchestras. Though it might not offer the best Tango classes in Buenos Aires, Salón Canning, also known as Milonga Parakultural is a great choice for an authentic Tango evening. Most of their nights begin with a dance lesson, right before the professionals hit the dance floor.
