Answer: Are you sure they are dead? Lots of times dahlia bulbs look like something from King Tut's tomb yet they are still alive. Did you try planting them anyway? Here's the procedure for digging and storage: dig them before the first frost or just after the first mild frost, shake off any loose soil, and allow them to dry in a dark, cool (35-40F), dry spot for approximately 1 week. They should then be placed in dry peat moss for winter storage in a cool, dry location. Hope this makes the difference!
