One step
at a time By Meg Kennedy

Korweinguboora resident Julie Matthews-Eva has never been a


stranger to adventure – from snow-skiing, scuba diving, to flying
a plane.
The thing is, she’s done it all with an artificial leg.
Now, Ms Matthews-Eva is breaking new ground as the first person
in the world to compete at a national level in Ballroom dancing with
a bionic leg.
After an appearance last month on the Channel Nine reality TV
show ‘This Time Next Year’, Ms Matthews-Eva pledged to dance
again.
A year and a half later, taking up her first dancing lesson in April
2018, Ms Matthews-Eva has gone on to compete nationally in
Ballroom dancing; with the waltz, foxtrot, tango and rumba her
chosen styles.
Ms Matthews-Eva was born in New Zealand and moved to a 20-
acre property in Korweinguboora with her husband in 2004.
She lost her left leg on her 16th birthday in 1980, following a
diagnosis of bone cancer.
This led to a rare amputation known as hip disarticulation, which
makes up less than one percent of the population of amputees.
Ms Matthews-Eva is following – quite literally – in the footsteps of
her parents, who were both ballroom dancers.
“That was their first date, and then they always ballroom danced;
my sisters ballroom danced, but I never really got the opportunity…
although I danced around the living room…I always wanted to, and
never could, and never thought I could, and now I can.”
Ms Matthews-Eva’s dream led to ground-breaking work to allow
her to dance.
“It takes a long time to get prosthetics right, and this is the first,
therefore the limb centre I’m working with, its new for them, they’ve
never done it before either,” she said.
In the 39-years since her amputation, Ms Matthews-Eva says there
has been a noticeable shift in the societal acceptance of people living
with a visible disability.
“In 1980, you hid your disability. You wore a cosmetic cover, and
you really didn’t tell people you had an artificial leg, you just wore
trousers, or you wore an artificial stocking,” she said.
“Whereas now, you have it on full display and you go ‘look at me’
– and that’s really come about because of the heroes from the war,
and from athletes, who now show their disability.”
“The public are generally more accepting, so I think that’s quite
Korweinguboora resident Julie Matthews-Eva is the first person in the world to compete at a national level in different from when I lost my leg.”
