Dahlia’s can be grown from seed. I have included a link to  ‘How to Grow Dahlia’s from Seed’. I’m sure you know that dahlia’s are tubers. The tubers can go directly into the ground in the spring when the ground has warmed and there is little chance of frost. One good guideline is to plant in the same time frame as you would a tomato. If you want blooms as early as possible, you can start the tubers indoors in good light about a month before planting time. Please also see The American Dahlia Society www.dahlia.org for more information and great photos.
