If the temperature is a steady 35-38°F (2-4°C) like a fridge that never changes, then it is OK to leave them in the dark for an extended period of time. However, if there is a chance that the temperature can rise and there's any ambient light, flytraps will try to grow even in dormancy. When growing without any light to fuel their growth, they run the risk of exerting themselves to the point they become very weak and can die from disease.
Ideally, temperatures are fairly mild (not colder than 50F or 10C or so) and Venus flytraps get full sunshine all during dormancy. Then they actually put on some decent growth below the ground and come out of dormancy much larger in the spring.
