The Madadian Multiplex Cinema is showing the latest offering from Arnold Schwartzandeggburger, a multi-sequel film called "Conan the Terminating Twin Recall Running Kindergarten Action Hero." A group of friends, consisting of eleven boys and girls, wait to take their seats in the same row in a movie theater. There are exactly 11 seats in the row.

They decided that after the first person sits down, the next person has to sit next to the first. The third sits next to one of the first two and so on until all eleven are seated. In other words, no person can take a seat that separates him/her from at least one other person.

How many different ways can this be accomplished? Note that the first person can choose any of the 11 seats.
