LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: One of Taylor Swift's former dancers has recently opened up about what it feels like to work under the pop superstar—and she didn't hold anything back.

Professional dancer and choreographer Charity Baroni recently shared her story in a TikTok video, detailing how she first got to perform on stage next to Swift as one of her backup dancers and sharing her experiences throughout her career.

What did Charity Baroni say? 

"So this all started back in 2009 when I got a call from my best friend Liz asking me if I wanted to go on tour with this girl named Taylor Swift," she began. 

Given that Swift was only just getting her start in the music industry, Baroni claimed she had no idea who the singer was at the time.

"Taylor's team was looking for another dancer last minute," she recalled while noting that the friend who connected her to Swift was already one of the backup singers for the 'Fortnight' songstress. 

"I got the call from Taylor's manager on Saturday and flew in on Sunday," she said, adding that she ultimately booked the job and "learned all of the dances in one night."

"I met Taylor the day after that call and working with her has changed the trajectory of my life," Baroni stated, before calling Swift "an incredible boss and friend." "It's so crazy to think that one phone call can change your life like that," she also said in the clip. 

In the comments section of another video, Baroni verified that Swift's Fearless Tour was the project she was initially hired for. She went on to serve as a dancer for the singer's Speak Now World Tour.

Swift will be stopping in Lisbon, Portugal, this coming weekend while on her international Eras Tour, which is now in its European leg.

Who is Charity Baroni? 

Baroni is a professional dancer who once said, "I am blessed and grateful to say I was able to pursue a dream and actually live it as a professional background dancer. My biggest gigs were dancing for Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, Beyonce and Katy Perry."

In an interview for Canvas Rebel, she said, "Due to my pro dance experiences, I am now able to say I am a choreographer and teacher who prioritizes the lessons I learned on and off stage. I now apply those lessons and adventures and what I want to do differently to my work and life."
