Theatre...but not the Bolshoi

I am visiting Moscow in August and wanted to take in a theatre / ballet performance. I always wanted to go to the Bolshoi but see that it is closed for Summer break.

Please could somebody suggest the "next best" theatre in Moscow, and a link to their website would be great.

2nd question. Does anybody know any good gym near Sportivnaya metro please?

As someone trying to answer the same question for myself, my tentative answer is the Russian Academic Youth Theatre, at Teatralnaya Square. It seems to have ballet performances then, but not yet bookable on line. Anyone have input on that option?

For TFCurves

You may have known this already but in case: the National Gallery of Art in DC is having a nice exhibit on Ballets Russes, a company found by Russian Sergio Diaghilev. He was known for his innovative approaches and collaborations with famous artists, composers, designers into his dancing. It's a visually stunning exhibit. It goes until Oct 6 I believe, and here is a digital brochure on it:
