The BlueRose is an impartial and libertine Viennese club for well chosen, well mannered and well educated men and women to support Viennese culture and strengthen friendship and academic networks. The core commitment for an active BlueRose Gentleman is the commitment to Viennese Ball Partners and the support of the club life and it’s well honored events (“Kavaliersveranstaltungen”). The club was founded by the artis Lex Lewis ★ and is coordinated by the BlueRose Enterprise and is under the care of the BlueRose Grandseigneurs. The principles the BlueRose stands for are:
- Respectabilty and tolerance
- C & C (commitment & competence)
- Solidarity and friendship
The BlueRose Club has regular club meetings to exchange about current world affairs, strengthen relationships between all members and listen to interesting speeches by different personalities or members. All BlueRose Gentlemen grew up in the environment of Viennese Balls and have undergone the school of good behavior as exercised by their commitment to Viennese Balls in the name of the BlueRose. They are the most representable men for the elegance of Vienna who live the dream of Vienna through their lifestyle and respectful treatment of other people. The admission to become a member (a Gentleman as well as a Grandseigneur later) is a strict procedure and the minimum requirements to become a BlueRose Gentleman are:
- Ongoing study or completed degree
- “BRONZE” dance-degree from a renowned and accepted dancing school.
- Ability to talk fluently English
- Able to wear a tuxedo
- Very cultivated manners and well-groomed appearance
Normally a gentleman enters the BlueRose club during his studies as a BlueRose Gentleman. In this time they are obligated to support the club. They have to show good manners, politeness and inspiring conversations within national and international society-cercles. The income the BlueRose Gentlemen generates will be used for internal club costs (e.g.: club accommodation), member support, scholarships and other well-respected projects. The club is provided, financial supported and managed fully by the BlueRose Enterprise. After an adequate time and commitment to the club, a BlueRose Gentleman becomes a BlueRose Grandseigneur, who is a highly honoured BlueRose member for lifetime who is allowed to wear the BlueRose brooch on their tuxedo or jacket (if he is not away on business as a dancing partner for a customer). A Grandseigneur has the right to switch inactive for the ball-commitments. They hold their protecting hands over the BlueRose Gentlemen, take care of the club, make the most important internal decisions and have a deep and strong lifetime connection to the club, its members and network.
Please note: Every member is prohibited to communicate anything internal to non-club-members.
