Class not working - what am I doing wrong?

I thought I made this class right, but it appears not to be working:

static int BACK_COLOR = 255;

Shape square;

void setup(){ size(700,500); stroke(0); background(BACK_COLOR); square = new Shape(); }

void draw(){ background(BACK_COLOR); }

class Shape{ public Shape(){ float x = 0; float y = 0; boolean controlling = false; boolean isJumping = false; } void move(int move_X,int move_Y){ if(controlling){ x+=move_X; y+=move_Y; } } }

Every time I try to compile, it says "Cannot find anything named 'controlling'"

    Variable controlling was declared inside Shape's constructor.
    Therefore it is locally scoped there only and ceases to exist once constructor finishes!
