Hum... I don't know if it's really a good idea.
If you want to keep C-f, you will need to rebind C-u as well, as `u' in dvorak 
is where `f' is in qwerty.
With the same logic, you would have to rebind C-x (where `b' is), C-l (`n') and 
C-r (`p').

I think you should rebind every keys or none, because if you start rebinding 
just those you need at random places, I don't think it will be very comfy.

I guess you could check Xah Lee's emacs tutorial 
[] which provides an ergonomic shortcuts 
layouts for qwerty or dvorak, if I remember well. I didn't test it, I don't 
have the courage to learn every shortcut again...
