How do you make sure the actors already standing?

How do you make sure the actor is already standing and not popping up one by one?
For example at a party

INT. BACKGROUND NAME - DAY

&BGCHAR1 spot x y z and BGCHAR1 moves to layer # and BGCHAR1 is animation

&BGCHAR2 spot x y z and BGCHAR2 moves to layer # and BGCHAR2 is animation

&BGCHAR3 spot x y z and BGCHAR3 moves to layer # and BGCHAR3 is animation

&BGCHAR4 spot x y z and BGCHAR4 moves to layer # and BGCHAR4 is animation

&BGCHAR5 spot x y z and BGCHAR5 moves to layer # and BGCHAR5 is animation

&BGCHAR6 spot x y z and BGCHAR6 moves to layer # and BGCHAR6 is animation

(add as many background characters as you want)
